What a beautiful beach with natural beauty, this is not your typical beach as you can't go into the sea as the currents are very strong but the sand is white and the water is clear There is a cave and the surroundings are pretty perfect for a picnic or afternoon stroll It's a hidden gem

This is the kind of beach you see on all the postcards - white sands and bright blue sea with tall coconut trees dotted around. A beautiful beach - also the added bonus of fresh coconut picked from the palms just for us.

A bit hard to find, looks like your pulling into a gravel driveway but off to the left is a staircase, about 50 stairs and a short beautiful path is the most breath taking sight I've ever seen, no one was on this pice of beauty, there's plenty of shade trees and a part of the cliff bends just enough...

This beach is well off the beaten track. From the cliff the view of the beach is amazing. There is a feeling of being in paradise as you walk from one end of the beach to the next, wading in the sea water (just ankle deep) as the waves wash in and out. It is not recommended that you bathe... More

My husband and I visited this deserted beach today. It was relatively easy to find. Must walk down stairs in ill repair. The beach suffered from the seaweed and litter. I picked up the litter and placed it in the receptacles available. However, how often does on get to be on a beach and take in natural scenery. When we... More

Beautiful beach and area. I read that it is hard to find but I had no trouble. Seaweed issue at the time we went. But it is still a very scenic area. I would not recommend swimming at all.

We have been staying in Bottom Bay for three weeks now, The beach is awful, smelly seaweed 2 feet deep on the waters edge and very thick within a couple of feet of going into the sea. Sun beds are few and far between we counted six available. The rubbish everywhere as you leave the car was a real turn... More

This area was another liming spot for me and my girlfriends but to be honest if I could have married her there and then I would have. Beautiful sight, cool area and so tropical

I"d like to warn every body who is on the island right now that a couple of days ago Bottom bay and all nearby beaches were full of seaweed and smelly. Maybe you should stay on other areas of the island for a while, until the situation changes or people clean it up... it's a pity!

Though this wasn't a bay to swim in it was a great one to wade in and realx by. There were cocktails in the afternoon and gorgeous sunrises.
