This is another one of our favorite beaches. The sand isn't super soft like French Leave but the water is great for swimming and snorkeling. Easy access from the road, just across from Queen's Bath.

This was a great beach and very quiet! The snorkelling was excellent around the little island. You need to take water and food as it's a bit of a hike to the nearest restaurant.
