We headed to Norton Point beach as a guest of some lovely friends. Heading past the crowds at South Beach, we drove right onto the Beach. We barbequed and had a lovely lunch, sunbathed, played with the kids, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. It's all about you and family at Norton Point Beach....

If you have a four wheel drive vehicle and love the beach, this is the place for you. Serious waves, the smell of the ocean, and the beauty of not having to carry things out to the beach. Instead, you open the tail gate on your SUV, take out your beach chairs, and relax. But, please note, the is a... More

What seperates Norton from most Beaches on the island is the fact that you can drive your 4wd vehile out on it. They charge a fee for 1 day around 35 $ I think and a season pass for 125$. There are several beaches you can stop on depending if you want to be around people or if you want... More
