A wonderful nature area. A very narrow road through bush, all the way out to a prisitne beach. Felt like a deserted Island, no houses anywhere in sight, and we were there all alone. We went for a walk along the beach. Just wonderful!

This is the perfect beach! It has plenty of safe parking, it is down a ways from the hotel chains, and the beach stretches for quite a while. I was super impressed with the soft sands and easy access to the water. Not a lot of seaweed or rocks to get into the water.

We rode our bikes over to the Windsong resort and snorkeled at the park. It was easy entry from a lovely sandy beach and the reef was roped off in a circle with bouys to swim around. There were lots of different kinds of fish to see not too far offshore so it would be great for beginner snorkelers on... More

Very nice coral reef located right at the beach, within a short walk west along Grace Bay Beach. Perfect for beginner snorkelers, amazing variety of fish & corals accessible without a boat

We went to a couple of spots on Princess Alexandra - all were nice - near Grace Bay, so it was a nice break from the resort areas. Water was beautiful - as was the beach itself.

We got kayaks at Big Blue unlimited and paddled through the mangroves. It was very tranquil and pretty. You get some great views of the area. You need to be there at high tide though, so make sure you call ahead to find out when you should pick up your kayak.
