The bay is beautiful, and there's a little swing which I enjoyed. The food in the restaurant was alright, nothing special - the rotis came deconstructed, which I wasn't really into as the roti skin dries out.

My son and I drove up the coast to go to Englishman's Bay. The beach is so pretty, we were among 3 people there. It does have a couple small shops and a restaurant although we did not eat there. Very worth the drive, be careful of the roads there, very windy with hairpin turns. Be prepared for the locals... More

This is what a Caribbean beach should be. Beautiful setting and totally natural and unspoilt with just a restaurant to provide food and drinks.

Absolutely beautiful, Located on the North western coastline about 45 mins drive from Scarborough you will find this breath taking bay. There is a misconception that you will have to hike to this beach but that is wrong you can drive right onto the beach. There is ample parking free parking no cover charge to enter the beach. Lookout for... More

Stopped here on a round the island tour. The beach is amazing, the water clear and inviting. Not much in the way of facilities but local people friendly and easy to talk too.

Englishman's Bay is beautiful and was very quiet the day we were there. At one point we were the only ones on the beach. Steep slope into the water and 4 foot waves on a calm day, so probably not suitable if you have smaller children, but it's definately peaceful. We didn't try to snorkel, but the waves looked like...

When we were there, we had the beach to ourselves. Just us the Caribbean Sea and the palm trees. Take a picnic that way you can stay all day:)

To get to this beach is a long winding drive . The beach looks very nice from atop but when u get there it's very lonely. The water looked scary. We didn't bathe because of the water and there were no facilities at the beach. There is no lifeguard either..

My wife and I walked from Castara to this beautiful little bay which took about an hour. It was quiet with only 3 other people hanging out on the beach. There is a restaurant there that has a decent selection of food - we had the Roti which was lovely. Dining was available on the upper floor with a great... More
