This is your place. Aside from the surf hut and the food spot there is literally nothing else here. It's a little out of the way and the road coming in makes you feel lost the whole way. I like getting lost... and this was a great place to end up. Cane Garden Bay is a little too touristy for... More

Came with the Getaway and only had half a day, and wanted to get away from the tourist trap and after reading previews here, we went for it, and can only give positive words. A scenic drive to affordable 10 USD per person in taxi and arrival at a very nice beach where we shared it with just 4 other... More

we didn't like this beach at all. it felt hippyish and we got bit by sand fleas...but we aren't surfers, some in our group boogie board. Maybe we are too old for this beach...

I have been to the Caribbean 20+ times but never knew you could surf there. This beach was beautiful and not overrun with people. There was a couple of restaurants and bars as well as a surfboard rental booth. This beach was great check it out.

A beautiful beach, not crowded with a solid beach bar & restaurant. We really enjoyed our day, the beach has little wooded umbrellas with tables that you can sit under and rent chairs for $5 from the bar. This is a surfing beach, so there are waves, not the calm waters that other beaches on the island offer. But its... More

We spent many days at this beach, it was clean and had two places that served drinks and food. You also can rent chairs for $5.00 for the day.

Love to watch Aicah? and other surf instructors, instruct young and older, the fun of surfing. they have such patience! A beauty of a beach, pay attention to the color of flag, red, stop, yellow, use your brain. Get happy, let a warm wave slap you down.
