Princess Margaret beach is absolutely amazing. The water was warm and clear. Once we got into the water it was difficult getting out, it was so relaxing just being there. The beach area is clean. There are a few vendors on the beach selling drinks but there is no place to rinse off or change after bathing in the sea.... More

Lovely beach with a great bar and restaurant at the end too. We berthed our yacht here and had a night at the beach bar before retiring. Not the best place to snorkel though and watch out for all the local boats and even big ferries.

Looks much better in photos than in reality because of the same issue as in St Vincent, the white sand beach is marked with black streaks that I think are volcanic sand but look like there's been an oil spill.

Not often you find a beach that is totally unspoilt and peaceful. Felt a bit like Robinson Crusoe !!! Water is perfect for swimming. A glorious experience.

The beach is very picturesque, offers wonderful views, has powder white sand. There are chairs to use at Jack's - or rent on the beach. Snorkeling on far end is decent - saw an eel eat octopus! Unbelievable - and a nice variety of reef fish species - good snorkeling for direct offshore. The beach was not crowded, so felt... More

Now that the boardwalk has been extended from the old Pantation beach hotel access to this beach is much easier and the walk is spectacular. The only facility on the bay is Jack's Bar which tends to exploit it's monopoly position . The setting right on the beach is lovely but so much more could be done with it. Both... More

We passed through Bequia on our way to Mustique this year, but in previous years we have come on a trip from St Vincent's as we like the beaches here. You do need beach or water shoes here as there are sea urchins in the water. Also I prefer to be on a sunbed as there are holes in the... More

We enjoyed a day here recently on a cruise. You can walk here from the port or take a taxi. The beach is nice and there is a local lady who sets up here and rents a few chairs and has beverages for sale. Jack's Bar and Restaurant is at the end of the beach and has good food in... More

Lovely beach that I can and did easily spend a full day! Playing on the beach, swimming in the ocean and relaxing... easy to do on this popular (yet not overcrowded) beach in Bequia! Easily accessible via the ferry from St. Vincent or one of the stops on a boat day-trip with Fantasea Tours. :)
