It's a beautiful beach. It's very different from places like St. Lucia as there are no locals selling cheap souvenirs. The water is pristine. Walk down towards De Reef to find someone renting beach chairs.

Great beach, very clear waters, not crowded, some good snorkelling on either end of the beach. Also has a couple of reasonably priced bars with food for lunch. We had a great week there!

You simply can't find a better place to kick back and enjoy a few local cold ones. Rent a beach chair sit back and enjoy. It simply doesn't get better than this beach. While in Bequia make sure you try some bitter lemon. It's refreshing and wonderful just like the beach.

I have been sailed to most islands in the Caribbean and this beach is one of the very best. For swimming you can't beat it with the long sandy coastline. Onshore are nice beach bars to pick up a beer and pass the time. The soft sand is great for lounging and the views are a series of scenic paradise!... More

Lower Bay and Princess Margaret beaches are very similar. Nice for swim or snorkel. Easy snorkeling at the ends of these beaches, where the rocky headlands jut out. Many small fish, grunts, parrotfish. Not much coral. Lots of urchins. On foot you can reach an easy snorkeling spot (good with kids) and swim beach very near the Port Elizabeth town... More

Lower Bay has a beautiful beach with many waterfront restaurants to choose from. A great spot to watch sunsets. Seems to be more popular with locals than Princess Margaret Beach.

It was a gorgeous beach. One if the best on Bequia. It was clean with no glass on the beach and hassle free. A real jewel.

Unfortunately, it is overrun by the people from cruise-ships when the monstrosities are docked at the harbor!
