I stayed on this beach for 4 nights and the beach itself has nice sand, there is snorkeling on the edges near the reefs, and the sound of the waves from my hotel room was really nice. The beach has bars, food, and shops. It is a laid back relaxed place and has great sunsets too.

This entry to the beach area is a little scruffy and unappealing, but once passed this area the beach is excellent with the soft golden sand but as others have stated it can get very busy. There are lots of places to eat / get a drink / buy a souvenir. The sea is clear and swimming good - mind... More

The view was really nice here and the restaurant there was a fun place to meet up with friends for an early evening cocktail.

We traveled around the island by car and found Cane Garden Bay to be our favorite area. Local shops, beach bars, quaint hotels, very good food especially the breakfast at Rhymer's Beach Hotel. Sunsets are incredible!

Cane Garden Bay is such a relaxing place that we keep going back. Nothing there is fancy or five-star except the views! The beach is great and the Bay is a popular spot for sailors to anchor for a night or two, so you always meet new and interesting people. It is also a popular day trip for cruise shippers... More

We stayed at Cane Garden Bay and thought it was a great spot. Plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance. Local vendors set up most days for shopping. Beach does get crowded when cruise ships are in port but they are not there too long. Beach is well maintained and water is great. The swim area is roped off... More

Beautiful bay - good swimming, Myett's Restaurant has wonderful food. Check out the glass studio as well. Avoid cattle boat days at all costs.

We picked a day when no cruise ships were in port. Everyone we talked to had said the beach gets very crowded when the ships are in, as Cane Garden Bay is a shore excursion for many of the ships. I checked this site before we scheduled our visit to see which ships might be in port - http://ports.cruisett.com. We... More

We took the open-side bus from the cruise port. For $20 we had a tour lasting over 3 hours and with 45 minutes at the beach. I can recommend this as a good way to get amazing views and see a lot of this beautiful island. This beach is absolutely stunning with the softest golden sand but as others have... More

A lovely beach but often overrun with cruise ship day trippers. Swimming is good but it is hard to find a quiet spot. We did go there on a non cruise ship day and it was deserted - heaven
