I didn't get a chance to hit all the beaches of course in the few times i have been there..but i saw the most beautiful sunset ever, while seeing a cruise ship take off while wading in the warm Caribbean water. I can't wait to go back........

This fantastic location was a hit with our young kids who relished the serene transparent waters especially snorkeling with sea sponges and tropical fishes. The coast was strewn with shady trees u could easily grab a quick nap under. In cruise ship days it was really busy but otherwise peaceful and picturesque We loved every minute of it It was... More

This is a very nice beach. We snorkeled but saw nothing since the water was churned up and very cloudy. Big bar crowd.

Sorry, but we got to this beach and turned right around and left! Too small, kind of dirty, huge rocks everywhere and very rough surf. Not my idea of paradise! We didn't stay long enough to notice if there were bathrooms, I'm assuming there were because there was some kind of bar/restaurant there. Definately not a beach for people with... More

Many people think the first beach by the pier is Rainbow Beach, as you can see from the review not far below. That beach is Fort Frederik Beach. To reach Rainbow beach, you must walk the road that runs along the beach north, for about 20 minutes. You will pass Coconuts and eventually come to Rhythms on Rainbow Beach, a... More

Sandy beach with some rocks, on the day we were there, the water was very rough, hard to stand up. Jet skies and kayaks were available. Had restrooms and a beach bar on sight, great food.

After reading reviews on cruise critic, we followed the trend and paid $6 per person for a quick shuttle bus to the popular Rainbow Beach. It is small, rocky and not worth the trip. The beach you see at the end of the pier for no cost is much nicer! Literally, Rainbow beach is so small and crowded and you... More

Checked out the beach. Best for people who want jet ski's. Rocky off shore. They also have a beach bar near by. Paddle boats, kayaks, scuba gear shops

This beach was recommended to us by locals and it didn't disappoint. Many amenities on site, restaurant, kayak rentals, horseback riding. We came in the morning with our 11 month old baby and brought a tent, and stayed all day. So glad we came!
