Most of the cruise passengers hang out at the beach right next to the cruise ships. There are plenty of restaurants & shops in that area. There is also Pop & Island music blaring the whole time too. I wasn’t in the mood for partying so I decided to go for a run. I came across Governor’s beach first (approximately... More

Some nice beaches which are covered on there own. The park is just a sign on the beach. Go for the beach, not the park

Beautiful, tranquil clear blue water. The bluest water I've seen. It was just like the Corona commercial.

This runs the length of the west of the island almost, and includes some great beaches, including Governors beach. If you are staying on the island during the week head to Governors Beach and you will have the place to yourself.

The most wonderful sand, ultra-clear bathlike water, and the most incredible reef I've seen. "The Wall" drops off from 30' to 7000' (yes, seven THOUSAND feet) - breathtaking.

No venders here. Just a little public beach with a couple of benches and a huge shade tree. We really enjoyed the beach.

Not much to see and not even the place Columbus landed according to most scholars. Save your time and just hang out down at Jack's Shack....

This is a pretty big area (I might be wrong, but it seems to stretch from the Cruise Ship area down quite a ways) but there are a series of nice turn-offs with great beaches.
