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

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. :)

Bring chairs, sunblock, towel and a free open mind, a wonderful day at the beach, relax take in the crashing waves, and in the back ground the "liming" energy of Bequia, a must stop of the area.
