The exciting part of the beach trip for me was the Princess Margaret Trail. The beach is a gorgeous stretch of white sand contrasting against the many shades of the blue of the sea. On my walk across the beach I spotted a group of snorkelers on the far left of the beach (not the end with Jack's restaurant). I... More

Closest beach to town. Nice walk on the boardwalk or water taxi a lot of fun. The day before we arrived there were stingrays seen close to the beach. Chairs and loungers available. Worth a trip.

Excellent beach for swimming - highly recommended if you enjoy long distance swimming in a safe environment. Even a couple of ladies selling Rum Punch and cold beers on the beach!

We didn't use the water taxi, just walked up the path up the little hill into the forest and back down the wooden stairs, which was very easy to find, after this you have to walk along some rocks (be careful as are wet) then onto the beach. Tall green trees as a backdrop to be used as shade behind... More

We were taken here on a boat, so we swam to shore for a look. We also went out a couple of times to snorkel from the beach. There is a gorgeous little tunnel above water by the snorkelling area where the water comes in. It reminded me a bit of the Baths on Virgin Gorda. The water was warm... More

Lots of time spent on this quiet beach. Very clear blue water, with very few folks enjoying this special place at at any time. This was our entry point for snorkeling adventures.

No water taxi when we visited so got their by local taxi but worth it. The beach is a wonderful crescent shape of soft sand with beach chairs available for $6 US a day. It shelves quite steeply but the waters are crystal clear and warm.
