Golden Bay is the best beach on the Island, and even in Winter, when I didn't fancy a dip, I still sent there for the view, so sit in the cafes, each ice-cream, and remember fantastic summer days on this lovely spot.

We went for family day out. Apart for the buses are every hour, and we just missed one,it's amazing! A must go! Clean,golden sands, restaurants, ice cream bars and toilet facilities.

Very clean beach. I stayed at the Radisson wich owns part of the beach so we had fresh towels and Sun lounger for free. Water is Crystal clear and the sand is golden. The beach does get busy but very easy to get here by bus

Beautiful beach, crystal water, quiet. The only problem i found was the lack of sunshades on the beach itself. There is coffee shop on the beach, you can stay there, but no umbrellas (at least in October). Good connection with a bus, great experience.

This was a lovely open sweeping bay where the surfers were out trying to catch one of the big waves which then gently broke in the long shallow sandy bay

Nice clean beach - not too busy this time of year and nice beach bars. Great walks able to be done from here as easy or strenuous as you prefer.

The ocean water here is spectacular and crystal clear,if you want a long beach with golden sands this is the wrong place.

Easy to get to but packed in the summer. In Nov water still warm enough for a dip and fewer people there.
