I loved this beach, a bit off the beaten track and you have to climb down a flight of stone stairs to get on to it but the water was clear and lovely. Good spot for snorkelling

this was our last beach stop after a long day of beach hopping. The sand was delightful. There are rocks in the water so be careful and the waves can be a bit rough. However the sunset makes it worth it. Also check our the beach bars!!!

Nice big beach, snorkeling is okay. We had the shrimp plate for $14/each, I subbed beans for fries, great beach food. The water and sand are very nice, loved the red rock! Picturesque

This is by far one of the top three beaches in my opinion. Clarity and visibility is incredible. It's a little off the beaten path but definitely worth going for it. There's two shacks to eat and buy beverages but service is not good. You can rent two chairs with an umbrella for $15 but they're a bit old and... More

Baie Rouge is a sandy beach with large stones in it. There's a quite steep decline short out of the coast. Tidal waves can be quite strong here.

I love this place. Quiet and relaxing. The bartender at the one bar there (not Gus, the other one) is so nice. We have spent the last 3 evenings there.

Nice beach, with some cons. The are rocks on the shore and the waters go deep quite quickly. The undertow is also quite strong. In general, one might pay a lot of attention when going with children. It's possible to rent chairs and umbrella and at Gus kiosk you can also have something to eat.

MUST SEE!!! Very relaxing beach and best to stay to watch the sunset!~ Water is very calm most of the time and there is a big rock to the side where you can do great snorkeling!

Hard beach to find, but well worth it!!! Bring your snorkel gear or rent some there.. Also make sure to get your beach chairs thru Gus', rather then questionable people in parking lot.. Plan ahead and pack your cooler and towels too. Family friendly.
