This beach is secluded and has huge rocks. It is shallow and not rough. Perfect for young children. Facilities include restrooms and food/refreshments. You can rent snorkeling equipment as well. Lovely for families.

It was far too cold to go swimming so when we made it to Tobacco Bay we were the only people there. The view was amazing and it was nice to sit on the rocks and listen to the water. I realize the beaches are closed for the winter but the garbage should have been picked up. It was disgusting... More

We visited in winter (January), so everything was closed - no food, bathrooms, rentals, etc. But we didn't mind - it was a little too cool to swim the day we visited, but we enjoyed just walking around and looking at the view. If it had been a little warmer, it would have been perfect - we didn't see anyone... More

I totally disagree with the reviewer below - the off-season is a great time to go!! We had the beach and the bay 100% to ourselves - did not see another soul in the area the whole time we were there (about 30 minutes). The beach is small, but there's more to see than just that. We walked past the... More

We rode our scooter all the way to the other side of the island to see this beach, but were not able to enjoy it. It was full. And by full, I mean there were barely any space available to even walk around. The beach is nicely separated by reefs from the ocean, so the water is very calm. That... More

The beach isn't maintained in the off season: the seaweed is deep and stinky, there's lots of garbage, and it's not worth the trip.

This is a fabulous beach - small but very sheltered. Swimming and snorkling is very safe. The best fish were beyond the rocks. The beach café is closed between November and March so you will need to bring a picnic but there are sun beds available so you can soak up the ambience very comfortably

The limestone rock formations caught our vision as we walked towards the small and secluded bay which we had all to ourselves since their were no cruise ships landing. We had some lovely view of fish and corals as we swam towards the right side in between the rocks. There is a drop in the ocean floor and whop the... More

This is a fab little bay but get there early as it is popular with the locals and the cruise ships drop their cargo of here too!!! We got here early morning and were happy to stroll back into St Georges by the time it started to pack out. Good facilities as well.
