Lovely beach where you can take a swim among warm sea water and cols fresh water from the river that come together at the beach. You can have lunch there. One of the most beautiful beach I've ever been.

Only regret was not getting there early so I would have all day to soak it all in. This is the best spot in the island! No words can express the delight, beauty, or perfection of this cove. It's quiet and alive. It's tranquility and...More

Frenchman’s Cove is a marvellous place where the river meets the sea. Thus, swimming there is an interesting experience as some parts of the water are cold and some others are warm. The waves can be very powerful, so be careful not to go too...More

I have two more questions concerning taking a trip to this beach. Umm what activities can be done at this beach, like surfing etc? And what is the price of food like? Because I don't really want to spend too much on food.
