“beautiful scenery, strong waves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

To get to the beach there are few steps down, then the view of the waves is mesmerizing. There is a little cave on the right. It is quite secluded. We saw one person challenging the waves, but we did not dare. It is beautiful look and get wet at the shore.

“Very picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

It's a little hard to get here, but worth the trip. It was almost completely empty so the natural beauty stood out. I can see why this place is used for fashion photo shoots.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We were touring the island and visisting as many beaches as possible. Bottom Bay was just idyllic
the kind of beach you see in holiday brouchures.
I would warn however there is not too much shade at all and the sea can be very Deceiving there is a strong undercurrent and it can be rougher than it looks so children need to stay with parents althoug I have to say would not advise swimming for kids.

Wonderful locals sell cococut drinks with mount gay rum - fabulous some people complained however these guys were very polite not pushy and allot of fun Everyone has to make a little cash and they really try to be friendly.

A lovely spot away from the crowds. LOTS of sunscreen

“Quiet Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Very beautiful, but quite lonely and not alot of shade. I would recommend this spot for a picnic but not for extended periods. The ocean here is quite rough.
