Beach area is small but ocean swimming is excellent. Surroundings are beautiful, lots of room to meander and good photo ops. Not a real tourist destination because of location, which is good. Laid back, chillin', good ambience, very relaxing. No vendors, only 5 bucks to...More

Completely off the beaten path. I contacted a tour group and specifically just asked to spend the day at James Bond Beach. There was not a cruise ship or hoards of people anywhere around. We love quiet beaches.

The beach is tiny, but come here before noon and you'll be almost guaranteed to have the place just for yourself. Plenty of shade. Sandy floor with some rocks. It's a bit secluded from the wind, so even when the surf is a bit rough...More

The grounds are plenty big to hold a church outing. Not sure about bringing a large amount of food in but calling them would be the best way to find out. 1-876-975-3665
