“No need to look anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Whether you are staying at Divi Little Bay or the Belair Hotel this beach is by far one of the best on the island. Not overly crowded and waves are perfect. If you get off a ship and want something a little quieter than the beach in Philipsburg... THIS is the one!

“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The view is spectaculer. It is excluded & you can see cruise ships approaching the island. It is within walking distance of the great shopping on front street. The restaurant is good enough to stay & eat on site.

“LITTLE BAY BEACH”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

smaller bay just outside of Phillipsburg, access a little awkward with narrow entry road, not well marked like most of the isalnd beaches, access through resort, snorkling was supposed to be good, but on the 4 times I was there the water was cloudy and a bit rough, also popular with tour boats, so can be crowded at times.

“Family friendly beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We own a timeshare in Little Bay. The beach is continually reformed by the weather so it is hard to describe. The Gingerbread Cafe at Belair Beach Hotel has the best burgers on the island.
