A lovely beach in Rainbow Bay. It is small with a couple of picnic tables. Keep exploring the island, there are 100's more beaches to see.

You want to get attacked by noseeums? Bites to cover your body for months. In swarms! Repellant does nothing when they fly right into your face. Want to get attacked by jellyfish? Left with burns for months... Get killed by swarms of Lion fish? Get more burns from Fire Coral? Then this is your beach!

The beach is quite small. Nice if you like it because easy to access and with some picnic tables and shade, but the nearby bay in general is of an intense blue color. I loved it

Not well marked. We passed right by it and had to ask a local where it is. It's just south of the Rainbow Inn by about a mile on the Caribbean side. Turn by the 3 triangular shaped landscaped areas. Easy access to beach. Paved parking.

This island in general has stolen my heart, I went from being scared of the sea to in love with it. The natural beauty of this beach is astounding and i could easily spend all day sunbathing or snorkelling here!

This beach is found in the north central section of the island, south of the Rainbow Inn. If you really want to get picky, the sand isn't quite as fine as say, Lighthouse Beach, nor is the shoreline as pebble/rock free for entrance/exit as French Leave Beach. However, it is also these qualities that make it very special in it's... More
