Soft white sand, glittering sea, sailboats abob on gentle waves, shallow waters, palm fringed beach, and Jack's Bar only a few steps away. What can be wrong about any of that. Best reached by water taxi, though, as the road's a bit tortuous if you've not got a 4x4.

wonderful beach, lovely snorkelling by the cave, and turtles are seen by the jetty. Can be noisy if a party boat arrives, but this is rare. My favourite place other than Lower Bay on the Island.

A very clean, and relaxing spot to swim. No real facilities exist, although there is a Bar called Jacks at the end of the beach. A few local vendors, selling their crafts, and renting beach chairs. Great view of the Admiralty Bay of all the yachts and cats.

We thought the Grand Anse on Grenada was better and have no trash. Be careful of the manchineel trees, don't sit under them when it rains! Better to steer clear altogether.

The beach is nice but not special. A turnoff was all the plastic and garbage when snorkeling at Jack's place a real disgrace I would say even criminal.

We took the taxi from the ferry docks to the beach. The cab driver dropped us off at the top of the rocky road, which led to the beach. We told him what time we needed to go back to the ferry, and he was there on time. Once down at the beach, it was perfect. The sand was smooth;... More

The road is a little dodgy but you easily forget about that once you settle in and take in the view, it is brilliant. The yachts, catamarans, tranquility and spectacular water - you won't want to leave this beauty of a spot or island.

Located at the bottom of a steep hill if you were on foot. Best access is by water taxi. The beach is magnificent, clean and private. At the end of the beach is Jacks bar, an upmarket bar and restaurant, idyllic setting For dinner at sunset. A trifle expensive I thought. Is that a picture of Capt Townsend behind the... More

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
