Really beautiful village with amazingly friendly and accommodating people. It's a bit out of the way, which makes it a great place if you want peace and quiet and some great relax time. It's got great food, but be warned, the bank machine (there is only one) does not always have money in it. Be prepared to drive to an... More

Worth the bumpy drive as this is a very pretty fishing village which boasts its own small, secluded beach. Friendly people and some nice restaurants etc. Need a car if you stay here to get around, avoid driving at night as gets very dark and lots of steep drops to the side of the road.

This is a nice village where you can quickly become part of the pulse of life. Whether that is popping out for breakfast, going shopping, or meeting the fisherman to get the day's catch. Tourists are accepted here and tourism is currently low key. The one issue is that this little village has something of a rubbish problem. The beach... More

Compared to other Caribbean beaches (Parlatuvier and Englishman's Bay) Castrara is quite busy, with building work in April this year, plus a busy little market and an average beach restaurant.

Beautiful beach, good for snorkeling , can see stingray's swimming along the beach edge if lucky. Sea can get rough tricky to get in and out of the water at times.

It felt like living within the local community for a couple of weeks. The waves were lively but fun, the beach was clean and we watched the fishermen daily. We often saw wildlife around the beach. Loved it

A beautiful sheltered bay to swim and snorkel in - large rays come into the shallows for feeding. Lovely hidden restaurant on the beach for coffee, beer and lunch, but they're closed on Saturdays. A camera is a must.

I've never been compelled to write a review of a bay before, but there's something about this place which is compelling. True, it isn't a white sand, guaranteed flat-as-a-pancake sea type of beach, and it is messy around the edges and the restaurants may or may not be open when you visit. But. It feels like the real Caribbean, and... More

still not perfectly managed, as there was broken glass and bottle tops everywhere on the beach. however, the views are stunning and Castara is so secluded and tranquil... Lots of fishing boats around so great place to observe greedy seabirds.
