Beautiful sea and beach, spoiled by rubbish washed up on the shore. We were told to be careful of strong currents to one side too which was a bit worrying. Although it wants to stay unspoilt I still think it could be tidied up and the little BBQ area improved on

Pink sand and blue waters - what else do you want for your day off of diving....take the bicycle and go - pack a lunch...it is spectacular.

PoS is a great, out of the way place to spend the day or just lunch time enjoying the beach and snorkeling! Although the bet way to get there is via vehicle, it can be done by bicycle if you're heat and sun tolerate (bring lots of water).

We got to see unbelievable sights! Caught a 4-ft shark, saw huge stingrays, large schools of fish coming in! It was a beautiful place to go! Well worth the trip!

Really nice place to snorkel. Gentle slope to walk into the water, crystal clear, lot's of fish, pretty beach. There is a shelter house near the beach where you can picnic or at least get out of the sun if needed. That is the only facility. It's a barren, beautiful beach. You need to bring any food/water that you will... More

You get dropped off at the thatched roof hut, carry your snorkeling gear down the beach to the long pier, put your gear on and enjoy. You're in about a 3 knot current drifting past individual coral heads. It will take you back down to the hut where you can have another go if you like.

Gorgeous place. However, beach is covered with plastic washed ashore. Spent some time picking up trash - four of us came away with four huge green trash bags full of plastic crap. If you go there - do the same. And please reconsider buying over packaged nonsense like bottled water. Bags provided at shelter house.

Clear beautiful water but a lot of trash washed up on shore you feel like your alone on a deserted island with food and water provided by southern cross club. They drove us out there for about an hour which is long enlighten for husband and I .its nice to be able to walk right out into water

Long hot go to get there via bike, a welcome shelter to chill under. Bring plenty of water. Good snorkeling - brain coral, purple fans, parrot fish. Easy access to the reef, go at high tide if you can, mind the current off the dock. The sand is like super bright sugar.

Picnic tables available. Rent a scooter to get here since it's on the far Eastern end of the island. You can see Cayman Brac from here.
