Beautiful clean beach in a beautiful setting. The parking is pricey and a long walk from the beach, but worth the trip.

Have been visiting this beach since I was a child. It is small and lovely. I don't mind the fee as the beach is so clean and well maintained along with life guards to make sure it's chaos free. Look around at all the trash...More

The series of storms in March (2018) pounded Singing Beach and left it a shadow of its former self. At high tide, the beach is tiny, and, subsequently, on a weekend day people are pressed together uncomfortably close and crowded. The beach is only about...More
