The beach itself is nice but SMALL! Pretty clear water but not very much marine life at all. Also a jet ski place had a rental there so not very safe for kids to be swimming around.

View, water, the yummy restraunt, they were great and split our orders both non spicy and spicy. I loved that they had a foot bath, to wash off the sand. Great cocktails too. Tip, the Renaissance hotel rents snorkel gear for $15 for 24 hrs, They rent gear for $10 an hour.

This beach is next to Rhythms Restaurant and was fun. Good for the family with plenty to do. Snorkeling was fun, jet ski was fun and the water was beautiful.

It's good for families, who might be looking for more sand, and West End Watersports has rentals available there.

This beach is nice because it is safe for kids, great sand and convenient location. It's great for Adults because Rythms restaurant bar is adjacent and has great drinks and rentals available. Go and have fun!

This is a great spot to hit whether getting off a cruise ship or spending a few days on the west side of the island. The beach is narrow but nice. They have chairs, umbrellas, water sports and toys, etc. There is also a nice little bar/restaurant that serves good drinks and food. The water is a bit rocky close... More

If your looking for a clean sandy beach this is not it. The view is great and the beach has the potential to be lovely, but there's lots of trash on the sand and under the trees. In the water there's lots and lots of rocks when you first enter. This is not the ideal beach for little kids or... More

Picture postcard beautiful. Very laid back & family friendly. Rythms on the Beach restaurant is right there to satisfy your eating & drinking needs.

Snorkeling kinda week, but a nice beach for the kids to play. Not the best on the island, but solid and worth a visit. Had fun with the stand up paddle board. You can haggle a little on the rentals.
