This beach is a little tough to get to unless you come by boat. It's a beautiful beach though and you have Jacks and a young lady renting chairs and selling drinks to make it comfortable. It will be nice when they complete the walkway from Belmont.

"Isolation" might be the wrong word to use. What I mean to say is that this beach never gets crowded. You have more visitors coming from yachts anchored in the bay than you do on foot or by car. As a result, the place stays pretty empty. I've had the entire beach to myself on several occasions, though certain times... More

Great beach, reached at the bottom of a badly-maintained and VERY steep road (locals call it 'Cardiac Hill' and for good reason if you don't have a car!).

Visitors to Bequia may be happy to know that the trail from Belmont beach to Princess Margaret beach which was closed for the past 6 years will soon be open again as a cliff side boardwalk which is now being built.

How can you not love PM Beach? except if you have to walk up the hill which is apparently known as cardiac hill. My advice is is you can't get a lift, take a water taxi back to Port Elizabeth, Didi (water taxi called Blessing) is often around the little jetty during the day

White sand, calm waters, great restaurant at Jack's. At the far end there is an interesting rock arch and tide pool. Lovely day spent at this beach.

Great place to swim. Very idyllic and beautiful. There are cafes along the beach where we could have a drink or a meal. Not too busy, just lovely. Would have liked to return and spend more time there.
