Owner description: Three hotels line this beach, making it popular with tourists; you might want to avoid this place if you're not into the Spring Break college kid party scene, which tends to crowd the beach during the Easter season.

“Visit this beach instead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Horseshoe Beach is the most popular however a few bus stops closer to Hamilton is Elbow Beach. Serene and beautiful, if you don't like crowds this is the beach for you. More pink sand than Horseshoe and an easier walk down from the street. Absolutely stunning. The drawback is there aren't any chairs or food/water vendors so you have to bring your own.

“So lovely, so private”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed at Coco Reef Hotel, as close to the beach as it gets. Every day we opened our patio door to the glorious sight of pink sand, turquoise water and white foamed, gentle surf. The beach was almost deserted with just a few bathers...very private and a gorgeous place to walk.
We saw the lovely longtail birds swooping over the water near the cliffs where they nest...just a picture-perfect place.
Dining at Elbow Beach includes the Coco Reef hotel with an outdoor patio as well as an indoor restaurant and bar...all with glorious views...or at the pricier Elbow Beach Resort next door in Mickey's Grille or Lido Restaurant or the Seabreeze Bar.

“Pink sand, turquoise water, goes on forever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Beautiful beach with plenty of space. Very clean sand and water, plus a few interesting rock formations here and there. Great beach for a long walk. Surf may be a little rough for swimming.
