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 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.

This is the beach off the Marriott Frenchman's Reef and Morningstar resort. It's a great beach with plenty of chairs and umbrellas as well as Coco Joe's restaurant and beach bar. Can't go wrong here.

The beach was really pretty. It wasn't too cold. It was very spacious and not a lot of people were on the beach. Not a lot of seaweed. Very pleasant and enjoyable experience for us.

You can watch the cruise ships come and go and there is a great beach bar and restaurant called Coco Joe's. There are also many iguanas (some quite large) roaming... More
