We came by boat, one of four in the area, to snorkel, it was not crowded at all. This allowed us to do our thing without any soliciting. That said, I can not comment on the beach itself. The snorkeling was the better then Anse Chastanet and Sugar Beach. The waters were super calm and the variety of both habitat... More

Never having snorkeled before this was quite a treat! Lovely area to explore, wish I could have stayed longer. Beach area very nice as well. Lots of folks offering to "tow" you with their boats to where you want to go, don't take them up on it...they are looking for tips. Otherwise, perfect way to spend an afternoon!!!

A small private beach that is usually accessed by party boats and tourists. Very quiet. Dark sand, beautiful water. Great depth for swimming.

Ti Kaye Resort is on a cliff several flights of stairs up from the beach. There's a great dive shop (Island Divers), and decent beach bar restaurant.

Sheltered rocks for snorkeling. Good selection of sea life. Beach cafe, dive shop and toilets.Choose your day as red flag may be flying some days. Downside can be busy with tour boats mid morning to mid afternoon. Access from Ti Kaye down 166 steps. Land access difficult for non-resort bathers as road very poor and some land is private restricting... More

I snorkeled Anse Chastanet, Soufriere Bay at the base of Petit Piton, and both sides of this beach. Cochon was tops. It had tons of fish, more varieties, and more coral features than the others. We saw a sea turtle, squid, and an eel which we did not see at Chastanet. We also found two conch shells that seemingly were... More
