Nice beach and plenty of fish to see. We stayed on the resort so we had passes to the beach. If you pay you get beach chairs and some have canopy’s if the beach isn’t crowded. There is a snack bar that serves a variety of foods and brinks. There is also a restaurant with a selection of steaks, etc. A little pricey but we ate at the snack bar and had pizza, wings and lodes taco salad.

Beautiful beach with a great bar! We stayed at Blue Bay and loved having this in our backyard. There’s a ton of seating, soft sand, and palapas if you get there early enough. Only drawback is that there is a lot of construction going on right now and it’s noisy at times.

Nice beach but the atmosphere is totally destroyed by ignorant parents and their screaming kids. Under 12s are supposed to be supervised and there shouldn't be more than 4 kids per adult but this isn't enforced and as a result you'll spend the day with earphones in to avoid being subjected to the screaming and yelling of people's badly behaved kids. Such an absolute shame.

This bay is beautiful and a great place to snorkel but when snorkeling, I heard some people talking all the sudden and looked up and there was a boat that docked just a few feet from my head. NOT OK! This bay is full of snorkelers and it was a boat that brings divers in and out and should be more careful. Otherwise I would have given a better review.

Did a short island tour and then stopped here for a few hours for some fun in the sun. The entry fee was only $12.00 per adult which included chairs and there were also plenty of umbrellas, and no restrictions on where you gather. There is a bar with reasonably priced cocktails. The beach has very fine sand with no rocks or shells, so no need for water shoes. The water is very clear and since it's in a small cove, there are no waves breaking, so after the water you can relax in relative peace. I've heard there are nicer beaches on the island, however we really enjoyed this little hideaway.

This beach is awesome. It’s not as picturesque as Cas Abao and Kenepa but it’s not rocky, it’s more
Shallow and sandy. It has lots of chairs, lots of trees to get some shade. The bar is great. The resto is just beautiful under the palapas. Good food too. I found it was very happening with the bar and music. It does not close at 6 which is great. It does have a lot more kids. They charge 12usd to enter and you get chairs. The area is in a resort fenced in location with homes/villas/hotel in a hilly area overlooking the beach. Frankly I could have a summer house here!

Nice beach with good snorkel and dive opportunity. Bar with snacks and restaurant, food choices are ok, service rather slow. You can order at your sunbed.

BUT they do not care about the environment at all. Throw away cups, straws, cutlery - you name it..
Tons of cigarettes on the beach. And as it rains they are being washed into the ocean.
We saw how they just put new sand over the cigarettes and other trash instead of removing it. Thats such a poor management and just a stupid thing to do. Simply shows how much more value the quick and easy money instead of longterm conservation has.
Also no barriers in the water over the coral, so swimmers and snorkelers just stamp on it.
If the management continues like that it sure plays their part in destroying this beautiful spot of nature..

This is a picture postcard beach with beautiful water, sand, palm trees, and desired amenities. Yes, there are even nicer beaches further away, but this was 10 minutes from the cruise port and very satisfying. Good waitstaff, drinks, clean restrooms and showers, and it was not unreasonably crowded. Perhaps that happens more in the summer months? We saw a lot of snorkelers and plenty of available chairs and umbrellas. We asked our taxi driver to return and pick us up, so it could not have been easier!

I guess if you're on a cruise, it's a great place to stop? Otherwise, with so many amazing beaches on the North side of the island, this beach is shameful. It's in a resort community, so I can understand going there if you have small kids and are staying at the resort. Otherwise (1) It's too crowded. (2) It's extremely small. (3) The far end of the beach is near a sewage line and you can DEFINITELY smell it. We left after about 10 minutes on a late Monday afternoon. If you're staying on the island for longer than a cruise stop and have a car: SKIP IT. Go to another beach in the North like Kenepa, Klein Knip or Daaibooi.

We spent the day on the beach, watched the sunset and stayed for dinner. The service on the Beach is fast and the food is good. The restaurant has a board of specials all of which looked good.
