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...

This was one of my favorites. The drive to get there was an absolute adventure...it was like off roading. Very serene area. The water was so clear and beautiful. Quiet and just a great place to enjoy the scenery.

We loved this beach! The road is rough but perfect for the off road driving enthusiast. Once you get to the beach it is paradise. The water is calm with great snorkeling, swimming and sunning. We also took the trail up to reef bay, petroglyphs, reef bay and Genti Bay. One of our favorite spots! Completely worth the drive out!... More

For those looking for an alternative to the Reef Bay trail from the steep trail head at Bordeaux Mnt., you can pick it up from here. There is a long, up-hill accent on the way to Reef Bay, then another on the way back - it took about 40 minutes to get to the petroglyphs and ruins, and a little... More

You need 4 wheel drive to get here, but it's worth the effort. Very good snorkeling, and a fabulous beach. The drive is no problem if you have 4WD and the road comes right next to the beach so bring all the coolers and gear you want. There is some shade, but not a lot.

This was our first trip to snorkel Little Lameshur Beach. After a very rough ride to the end of the road, we got to the beach and had it almost to ourselves for most of the day. The snorkeling was good after a long swim out to Yawzi Point up the left side of the bay. Lots of interesting coral... More

Tough drive even with 4 wheel Jeep. Less crowded and no tour groups. Beach a little rocky. Most secluded beach we visited. Fairly good snorkeling and good shade available.

Was amazingly crowded on a Sunday considering how bad the road is getting there. Cool ruins at west end of beach (up a bit) by trailhead. Beach was nice, snorkeling was average. Best part was our pit stop at the VIERS. Tektite museum was interesting.
