Some of the best snorkeling on the island right off the beach. A wreck and a lot of turtles. Waters are protected and calm.

We settled in a lovely spot on the beach with our chairs and umbrellas at Miacheals place. We were quite a crowd but they sorted us out in no time. We purchased our beers ( even had a hole dug for us and a bucket placed in it to keep the beer cold ) and settled in for the day.... More

Went here on a cruise ship tour that visited 3 local beaches. This was by far the best one. We only got to spend 45 minutes here but t was heavenly. The ladies running the facilities do not stock the stalls with toilet paper so if you need some make to ask them. The sand is powder white. Fantastic!

He took us to interesting places, including the race track, local government buildings, and a local fresh fish market where we ate delicious... More

Title says it all. Pebble Beach in Carlisle Bay is paradise!! Apart from Sundays it is very quiet and a great place to wait and see the sun set.

We found agur own little piece of paradise about a minute before the boat yard , dropped our towels down and relaxed. The taxi drivers will tell you it's "too far " to... More

No words can really describe the beach at Carlisle Bay. It goes on forever with amazing soft, white sand. The water is amazingly clear ..you can see the bottom when even out over your head. Getting in and out of the water is easy..no ledges, rocks, coral, etc. and the water is so warm.
