Not that much different than Princess Margaret Beach, but many more options available for food and drink. Restaurants include La Plage, Keegans, Da Reef and Dawns. Beach loungers available for rent from most but I think Keegans was the least expensive....about $5 USD. It is the furthest beach from Port Elizabeth, about 2.5 miles, which includes some hill walking. Taxi's... More

Absolutely pristine location. I was ecstatic that I could eat tamarind right off the tree. #islandlife

After what seemed like a mammoth hike in 35 degree heat this beach definitely lived up to expectations. The beach was well kept and clean and the water a beautiful clear blue. It is very good for snorkeling but you do have to swim out quite far. There are also a number of restaurants (only one of which was open... More

Very few people, we were there for 3 weeks before Christmas Holidays stared and had the beach almost to ourselves every day. Wonderfully warm water, little waves, beautiful pale golden sand and some rocks for snorkeling here and there. A few nice bars if you get thirsty or need a washroom but plenty of completely quiet and scenic spots were... More

Best beach on Bequia in my opinion. Long golden sandy beach with a few bars and restaurants across the road. The water is clear, calm and warm.

Lower Bay Beach is one of the most popular in Bequia, and no wonder why! It is a great beach perfect for family, friends or if you just want to relax by yourself. The water is soothing, the sand is beautiful. Its a lovely beach.

It has white sandy beach with clear blue crystal waters, take a picnic with you, sit under the trees and read a book, meet new friends, or go snorkelling along the reef. You can also visit De Reef restaurant and Bar, or Keegan's Bar just on the water front if you need a local rum punch or fruit punch. What... More

Lower Bay is second only to Princess Margaret Beach. It's much longer with bits of old coral reef jutting up on the tide line and with quite good snorkeling to be had at the very far end. There are a number of pretty good eateries and bars too, which in season quite simply 'bop'. Out of season not all of... More
