This beach has two faces: a quit spot to relax in a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks purchased from the beach bar; or, a sporty beach to snorkel, windsurf, sail and play volleyball. The choice is yours.

This is a long beach that runs along the Morningstar/Frenchman's Reef Resort. There is a restaurant, a couple gift shops, and an equipment rental station on the beach that you can use to enhance your beach experience. The equipment seemed new and kept up nicely, the staff were friendly and the water was beautiful! There is parking within a few... More

This beach is gorgeous with different shades of blue and clear as bath water. Fairly warm too. We snorkeled right off the beach and saw quite a few fish. The sand is soft and clean, unless you get closer to the beach hut where it turns more rocky and shells collect there. Not crowded and plenty of chairs and umbrellas.

Stayed at the hotel a while back. Loved this beach. Clean, fresh and not crowded. Mostly hotel guests, but you can go as visitor and rent chairs etc. Wonderful clear water with fun mild waves. A little bit of snorkeling spot. The beach just east has more snorkeling. Delicious pina colada.

Morningstar is only a 20 minute taxi ride from the Cruise ship dock, The road to the beach is winding and downhill. The beach itself is very clean and you are able to rent chairs and umbrellas and get adult drinks. There is not a lot of wave action. The sand at the point where the waves do come in... More

Loved this beach. Very close and convenient as i stayed at the Marriott Frenchmen's Cove. There is a place to rent/purchase snorkel gear and the beach was not overcrowded. A little piece of heaven.

We were staying at the Marriot so this beach was right next to our resort. It was beautiful and uncrowded. We spent a lot of time enjoying the nice waves and perfect sand! There are a few dining options right on the beach and plenty of drinks! There are also a multitude of water toys available for use free of... More

This beach was attached to our hotel and was beautiful. It had everything you could want to relax. There was a restaurant and bar steps off the beach that had great food and a relaxing atmosphere.
