Kim Sha Beach is within walking distance of the Simpson Bay Resort property where we stayed. While it’s on the small-side, there’s still plenty of space available to stretch out on this clean beach (I think it is raked daily by the Atrium staff). On...More

We visited here with my family and friends and found it to be great for kids, the water is flat and calm for the kids. There is Buccaneer Beach bar where you can get food/drinks.

There are so many amazing beaches on this island, so if you only have limited time, this is not my first choice. There is nothing wrong with the beach, it is beautiful, the people are kind, welcoming and friendly. We saw many of the other...More

This beach is absolutely stunning: azure water, calm and clear, no waves, plenty of long chairs, umbrellas, and peddle boats for rent. The view of the many boats and catamarans that are anchored in the bay is beautiful. The sand is like powder and there...More

This small beach is centrally located in Simpson Bay and it is absolutely beautiful. The beach is clean and if you stay at the Atrium, you get the use of chairs and umbrellas for free. There are many boats in the water and they make...More

Had a good experience at the beach and Buckeneer Beach Grill. Chairs and umbrellas were $5 each and the food and drinks were good. The 2 for 1 Dirty Banana was very good.

I would say 14$ but around that. 14$-16$. Taxis are very expensive on the island for the distances.
