No tourist crap here. Just a big secluded beach with great water and marine life. Bring your own food and drink snorkelling stuff.

Trying to avoid the crowds, my wife and I spent 1/2 day at Brewer's and loved it. This is on the warmer side of the island and a very chill place to hang out. Snorkeling was also very good.
