Lovely beach

This is a lovely beach to stop at on the way to Horseshoe Bay Beach. The beach is very accessible from the dockyard by bus.

From the street, you walk down a couple flights of stairs to the beach and there’s a guy at the bottom renting chairs and umbrellas. There were facilities near the top of the stairs, but they seem to be shut down. There was also a refreshment stand when we were there on the street level a short walk to the... More

Beautiful beach, good snorkeling. The water looked too rough on our first visit (late afternoon), so we tried a different day at an earlier time which worked out better. I loved swimming through schools of tiny fish, and admiring the huge and beautiful parrotfish here. The water was still a bit rough, so we only lasted about an hour before... More

Our driver recommend this place for snorkeling and was dead on. Nice small quiet beach. Umbrellas and chair rentals and a nice place to spend a day. Driver phone number 441-334-9879 Leon smith was great at giving us cool places to go that met our needs with kids and adults. If you like to snorkel this is a must do.

Best kept secret. Like your own private beach. Only downer is there is no bathrooms. No life guards either. This is good for a few hours of swimming and relaxing. Just beautiful!
