This bay is accessed down a bumpy dirt road. That in itself was an adventure. The beach was never crowded and there were picnic tables and plenty of shade. From here you could access numerous trails. I came here three times during my stay I loved it so much. The snorkeling was average, but the solitude and beauty of the... More

My wife and I visited Lameshur twice during our week-long stay near coral bay. The first time you venture off the end of the paved road you may wonder at the wisdom of continuing-but trust me you want to! Both times we went to the end at little lameshur-but we were drawn back to the larger (but rocky) great lameshur.... More

This is a decent beach on the south side of the island. A high clearance vehicle is required and 4wd is often needed, particularly after it rains. It's probably not worth the drive, you can get the same experience at Salt Pond.

Clear, calm water is good for snorkeling. Worth the ride in. Soft sands. A lot of people tend to go here with families. Sand fleas (or flies as the locals say) tend to come out at Bug Thirty (at dusk). They're brutal. Tie up your belongings. Mongoose are around and may grab your things. Otherwise, a very pretty spot.

The snorkeling is second to nine. Kind of hard to get to via vehicle. We visited via boat and it is amazing. Yawzi Point and the Tektite Snorkel are two of the best snorkels in the world.

Little Lameshur Bay is an out of the way beach where one must travel an unpaved winding and bumpy road. It is away from tourist and has limited places for parking your Jeep. Fun snorkeling is here with calm waters. There are no vendors here so bring your own food, beverages, snorkeling gear. You'll see some fish, squid, turtles, eels,... More

The drive to Lameshur is an adventure and the beach is mostly rocks but the snorkeling is great. Saw turtles, barracuda, other types of fish and lots of coral. Remote but worth the trip.

Beautiful hidden beach. Hardly any crowds. Great snorkeling. White sandy beach. If you want a cobblestone beach Great Lameshur is right next door. Can't wait to go back!

Tricky to get to, but worth the drive. The water was calm and beautiful. Some locals told us we should go since it hadn't rained in so long and the roads would be ok. If you do go, you might have this beautiful beach all to yourself.

We drove over a fairly rough road to Litlle Lameshur Bay because we had read good reviews of the snorkeling there. We swam primarily along the rocks on the left side of the bay (when facing the water) and went almost to the point where the water got very deep and a bit rough. My brother found an octopus, and...
