If you are looking for an uncrowded beach, great swimming and snorkelling along with places to have a beer and a meal - this is the place for you

Lower Bay is the beach to go to in Bequia. This beach has everything - fine sand, coral reef and tropical fish for snorkeling, multiple colors and an abundance of sea glass on the shore, beautiful swimming, and small local bars and restaurants. It is also a short (but hilly) walk to Princess Margaret Beach and the town of Port... More

A beautiful long white sandy beach to walk and swim off in calm seas, not crowded, still unspoilt with a few local bars and restaurants.

It's my first time in Bequia...... and I love it. Part of the reason is the beaches. Lower bay was my personal favourite. Great for relaxing in the sun in a quiet chilled out environment. Bring your snorkel there's also a nice area to snorkel at the end of the beach

Bequia is a lovely little island but can get crowded when a thousand or more cruise passengers descend upon it. Most people take one of the many small boats or walk to the first beach - Princess Margaret Beach, which is very pretty but also the most crowded. After checking out the small shops and restaurants on the lovely little... More

This is a very nice stretch of sandy beach, which I enjoyed a lot. It is well located, close to 3 good restaurants and bars.

Was at Lower Bay, Bequia in January as I spent a day in Bequia. The beach was quiet with just a few tourist strolling or swimming. Totally clear water for swimming, although at first it took me a while to get used to the water temperature. With the hot sunshine, when you first enter the water it feels cold. This... More

Love this place, has a great beach to hang out on and the food is fabulous. This is my favorite fish dinner on the Island and we have gone to every restaurant. You can rent chairs or a lounge for a very reasonable price.

Lower Bay Beach is one of three beautiful beaches in Bequia. There are numerous restaurants and bars plus public areas if you just want quiet. There is good snorkeling off the beach. Keegan's and others rent beach chairs for only 10EC per day. We walked from Friendship.

Unfortunately I have been spoilt by deserted pink beaches of Barbuda and this is not in the same league. However good safe beach with several adjacent bars, which is popular with tourists and locals. Lots of interest from the beach with yachts and the occasional cruise liner and tall ship coming and going. Be aware that sea can be subject... More
