Carlisle Bay is like a slice of heaven in earth. White sands and pristine blue waters. Looks like a postcard picture.

We anchored in the bay on a Tiami Catamaran cruise, the water was extremely clear and we saw 3 turtles and several brightly coloured fish, Well worth a visit if you get the opportunity.

Magnificent views of the sunrise and sunsets on Carlisle Bay. Wonderful for jogging as the stretch starts all the way from Hilton hotel straight to lower Bay street, lovely white sand and crystal clear water soothes every worry away.

You can walk but I'd take a taxi. They are inexpensive and quick. You could always walk back to the port of you had time and wanted to walk.
