“MY FAVORITE!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This is also known as Red Beach. It was my favorite beach on the island. The water was clear and beautiful. The waves were smaller earlier in the day and then got bigger towards the evening. We would body surf and had the best time. This beach did have a lot of people on it, but we would walk to the right side and be pretty much by ourselves. I wish I was there right now!!!!

“Red Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Once known as Red Beach during the Navy days, this was the officer's beach of the base, white sand, blue water, nice beach for kids, shallow and not to rough. Get there early if you want to have a kiosk since they are limited.

“Among the Best Caribbean Beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is just gorgeous, uncrowded - I think we saw six people. Great for snorkeling, and very swimmable. Bring provisions, nothing is provided in so far as services. It's a perfect white sand cresent beach with many palm tress for shade. Among one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, and I've seen many. Pristine aqua blue waters.

“Beautiful even during storm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We came on day of storm and rain. I refused to sit at home! We chose this beach because it was completely paved on the way to it and we didn't want to risk it with the rain. Got there and it was almost completely empty. Clear wateres and excellent long beach!
