This beach has two faces: a quit spot to relax in a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks purchased from the beach bar; or, a sporty beach to snorkel, windsurf, sail and play volleyball. The choice is yours.

This beach at the Marriott hotel has a lot to offer. Beautiful stretch of powdery sand, great all day breeze, easy access into the water, waves to body surf or boogie board. You have to rent chairs/umbrellas if you're not staying at the hotel or just toss your towels on the sand...you are on an island, you know, mon! Coco... More

Pretty beach. Not ideal for snorkeling but nice just to hang out and relax on. You can rent chairs (free if you're a Marriott guest). Havana Blue and Sandbar are both on this beach and both are delicious for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

This beach is gorgeous, with plenty of chairs, decent waves but calm enough to enjoy, paddle boards and floats are available and fun. There's a bar just up the beach and it's not too crowded to enjoy.

This beach is close to the West India dock, so it is easy to get to for cruise ship passengers. There are chairs for rent that are free if you stay at the Marriott. There are two beach side bars; however, one of the two is being renovated now. There is a small beach shop where you can get sunscreen,... More

Its a big beach, lots of chairs, and not overly crowded at all. Beautiful clean water and fun waves, with floats, paddle boards, etc. available. My family is having a great time here!

Beach is pretty nice but has a lot of wind. This is good for sunbathing but the windy conditions prevented us from getting to kayak. Rental equipment is free to Marriott guests. Be sure to return everything by 4:30 or there is a $25.00 charge

This quiet beach on the Marriott resort property is great for families. White powdery sand, beach service, Coco Joes for ocean front lunch, rental of all kinds of water sports equipment including jet skis make this one of the better beaches to enjoy on the island.
