Golden sand, calm blue water, diving platform in the middle - this is simply a lovely beach. And there are no crowds!

Emily Bay, in the Kingston area, is a must see whilst on the Island. Take a picnic basket and soak in the view.

A small but pleasant safe bay. Close to Kingston and great for snorkelling. Sandy beach with picnic tables and toilets. I saw small jelly fish on the beach in september but didnt have any problem with them in the water.

Safe and beautiful, not what we expected great location. The barbecues have a picnic and walk around Kingston.

Beautiful scenery and a lovely setting and even though it was Winter, there were people swimming in the clear sheltered bay with the water temperature being around 18-20c!
