If you're visiting Bequia then Lower Bay beach is a must. It's quiet, unspoilt and probably the best beach on Bequia. You might be asked to pay $EC15 for a sun lounger but the views and beach are well woth it.

Far preferable to the over-hyped and over-busy Princess Margaret Beach next door, Lower Bay is quiet and comfortable, with several inexpensive beach cafes behind it. There is shade under trees when you need it, the sand is golden and the swimming is good, with snorkelling at either end. You can walk there from Port Elizabeth along the Belmont shoreline to...

A nice long uncluttered beach that is very inviting to swim in. It is on the lower western side of the island.

Lower bay is a very quiet long golden beach. The main bar "De Reef' serves all the things you could possibly want. Delicious fresh food ! Very easy to get there by water taxi if your in the harbour otherwise local taxis. Very enjoyable to stay there all day.

We only made our way to Lower Bay a few times and every time it was extremely windy. The beach had quite a slope to it which made it a little difficult to lay on without renting a chair. Spent a fun Sunday afternoon at DeReef however enjoying lunch and a few beverages.

One of the nicest beaches on Bequia. Good snorkeling and swimming. Dotted about are a few seaside bars serving good food and beverages. There is also a coffee shop and local store for supplies. Worth a visit.

Lower Bay beach is longer than Princess Margaret beach, and if you would like to easily access it from there, they have built a new trail leading from one to the other, at the very end of Princess Margaret beach up a steep hill. I found Lower Bay to be a larger and longer beach, but much the same as... More

This beach is beautiful, and not crowded. A great place for a swim. Have heard from some people in the area there is a young girl and her family are known for theft from the tourists, while I've never had any issues, don't take any valuables or keep them on you.

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
