“Beautiful clear water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

This beach is pristine...soft sandy beach with beautiful clear water. Entry to the water has a steep drop off that quickly goes to 5+ feet, and the current can be strong. Since we had our two young children with us, we had to stay close to make sure they were okay. Maybe not the best beach if you have young kids but definitely worth the visit. The beach is only open Saturday-Sunday 10-4.

“Worth the trek out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

What a view, the water is amazingly blue. Bring a towel and enjoy your lunch on the beach. It is not one of the secluded beaches, this one had the most people on it, but was neat to walk up and down.

“Wow Factor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

This beach is simply the sweetest on the island. Spent 5 hrs there yesterday the 25th of March 2014. Seen turtles, dolphins and was even able to do some fishing while there away from everyone else. Did not catch anyThing. But enjoyed the awesome sites.

“Pure creamy white sands, site of Shawshank filming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

If you've seen the Shawshank Redemption, you'll remember the last scene. That last scene was filmed here. The sand is pure white and the waters are calm. It's relatively empty, even during the busiest cruise season. But check the hours, because they're not open year round. Being a nature preserve, there are some regulations in place. There are no bathrooms or showers (obvs). No umbrellas for rent, either. Just a clean, relaxing natural preserve.

“Nice quiet beach in the nature preserve”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

When in Fredriksted, this is a nice place to visit. Just a few miles south of Fredriksted. When we visited, the place was empty. Hardly anyone around. Nice place to walk on the beach and just appreciate the beauty of the beach.
