Not far from Trunk Bay, this beach is way less crowded. The family took a picnic lunch and enjoyed a day of snorkeling and “sandman” building.

The former campground buildings were destroyed by the hurricane. As of now, there are no facilities. But the beach is beautiful, the reef is coming back, and the snorkeling is great. Bring your own food and drink.

Spent most of our last day on this beach, didn't want to leave it. Again, not much shade so we needed an umbrella but when it gets windy, be prepared to fight with your umbrella. Nice white sand and calm waves, great for kids. We...More

This beach is very windy. The water tends to be a little choppy compared to other beaches. There are many seagulls and birds that swoop down and take your food right out of your hands! Snorkeling was good, but not great. We saw several sting...More
