Great staff. Comfortable rooms. Delicious food. Luv the Gauguin Restaurant, very romantic. Sitting on the deck at sunset sipping a drink is just relaxing.

We stayed at Galley Bay for the second part of our honeymoon. It was nice that this resort was not as commercial and more relaxing than the first resort we stayed at. The staff was VERY nice. The food was good, the drinks excellent. The pool is a little small the beach is where we spent all of our time.... More

The beach was simply one of the most beautiul beaches we've ever been to. Although there are 365 beaches on this island, this has to be one of the tops on the island. Even though the beach is public, it feels very secluded, and was barely populated. The water was perfect, and the waves and current were light and manageable.... More

Beach is a beach, there is not much parking. Pillars of hercules are on the other side of the trees very close to this beach. We found this out during a tour and are going back today to snorkel the whole thing again. This was probably the best snorkel spot on island that we experienced but you would have never... More

Stopped here for a 'pre-lunch' picnic before lunch aboard the yacht. Gorgeous! No-one there but us and the weather was perfect!

All beaches are public. We parked on the road along the fence and went through the gate. We put our stuff beneath the shade of a palm tree and spent the day snorkeling here.
