“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

This is one of the most idyllic beaches I have ever been to. As soon as you step on to the white sands and see the crashing surf and crystal clear waters you are entranced by its beauty.

We loved this place and my partner voted it the best beach she saw on the island.

As previous posters have commented, spare a few $$ for the coconut sellers, they are doing a good job and approach you in a friendly, pleasant way.

Great beach.

“What heaven feels like?!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Bottom Bay is simply divine. We had a visit here and bought a coconut cocktail from the guy on the beach. It was heaven - fresh, and icy cold, with the islands own Mount Gay rum. Give these guys a break everyone - in their own way they are just trying to earn a living. The sea is stunningly beautiful and clear but currents are strong, so unless you are really confident, best just for paddling and posing ;) Palms are so perfect and cliffs are so striking, it just feels like a tropical paradise on this little beach. Highly recommended!

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

A beautiful bay to stop by whilst travelling the island, quite hard to find but so so worth it! Huge cliffs and rolling blue seas, white sand and if your lucky you'll be the only ones there !
