Gibbes beach is an absolute GEM! Located north of Hole town and the rather busy tourist scene, this beach offers everything you think of when dreaming about the Caribbean. Beautiful white sands, blue water with bathtub like temperatures. Parking your car right at the beach...More

This was our favourite beach in the West coast, just up the road from Mullins (which we didn't like). No facilities here, so we bought two beach chairs from the DIY shop in Speightstwon, and a cool box, and every afternoon we would enjoy a...More

Not sure whether I should recommend this or not. I want to keep this secret for when I come again!!! Just a perfect beach. Very quiet. No facilities so take your own food and drink. Just chill out under a tree (plenty of shade until...More

Gibbs beach has palm trees coming right up to the back of the beach with stunning white sands and sparkling clear sea water. It is so dreamy and a wow of a beach. Try to visit, it's paradise.

Really gorgeous beach with shade if you want it. Good for snorkeling and swimming. Quiet and peaceful place to spend the day.

A little hard to find the beach access but well worth the hunt. Not many people on this amazingly beautiful stretch of beach. Great for swimming and floating or just enjoying the beach.

Went down around 8h in the morning for a 'dip' Probably quite understandable, but no-one else in the water plus only one or two people strolling on this nice secluded beach. For those going by car, need to park on one of the roads away...More

Gibbs is a nice alternative to Mullins Beach, just a short distance to the south. It has none of the amenities of Mullins, but is a very picturesque half moon bay with shade in parts from the pines, and no crowds. It is accessed by...More
