This is "must go" venue if you like the water. You have to hike through a marsh on a boardwalk but that's worth it too. The pictures give you a good idea and if the sun's out the water colour is exceptional. There not much...More

It's sometimes rare to find a completely unspoiled beach anywhere - no hotels, condos, shops, etc. This is one that is pure nature! We enjoyed an afternoon here and spent hours out in the warm water. It was a perfectly calm and sunny day without...More

Very nice beach. Time well with low tide. Very kid-friendly. No shade or amenities though, so plan well. Bring a pic nic and a tent if you need shade.

Grab a book. Take a camera or your charged phone. This beach was the one and the only beach we saw that was untouched, unspoiled, and clean. The island got hit hard from hurricanes so many beaches looked unkempt to me, but this beach is...More

The Best is to rent a car and spend a day on Beach. The natur park on other side of road not worth of time. But $ 5 Will pay in any case.

This was our favorite beach (after Fortune and Xanadu). Since cruise ship folks come around 1-2p if you arrive earlier and bring a lunch can really have a nice time from 9 to 1p. The walk through the mangroves to get there adds depth and...More

This is probably the nicest beach in the island - relatively wide, but mostly great because it has a sandy bottom with hardly any rocks. It is very shallow - at low tide you can walk out very far. Even at high tide it is...More
