Soft sand, clear water, limited people, amazing sunsets! What more could you ask for?? Also, make sure you bring your snorkel!

The beach is beautiful and very clean. There were more than enough chairs and umbrellas. The beaches are not very crowded, which was very nice. There are some large rocks in the water. I kicked a couple while swimming which didn't feel great. Other than that the beaches are top notch.

Nothing to dislike! The beach was quiet, beautiful, easy to swim and snorkel. The rocks could be a little rough, we suggest staying in the flatter area.

Small waves. Gorgeous sand. Water temp was awesome. The waves did kick up a few days into our stay, but it was amazing to watch the surfers!

this was our 9th visit back to Galley Bay. We've always been treated as part of their extended family. The staff has always been very courteous, friendly and made us feel very welcomed. My wife & I can't wait to go back.

Stayed at Galley Bay Resort, right on this beach. Wonderful beach, secluded and peaceful, top notch. You could snorkel right off the beach, friends of ours saw a sea turtle whilst doing this, water was beautiful, beach was phenomenal
