We just stopped by for a quick look. This beach is like a massive post card. The coulor of the water and sand are just amazing! Shallow waters, excellent for kids.

Very calm water at the end of the first turn-off to Orient Bay. Dirt road. No services or showers. Beware the French millennials hawking Dawn Beach Club time share scratch offs (What a scam! Get a job!).

The quintisentia family beach, perfect waters, little hermit crabs in the rock pools at the far end. But as the afternoon rums accumulate, the local party people increase, and the competing music gets a bit intrusive on an afternoons relaxation.

For my mothers 75th birthday we decided to celebrate it at that beach. The location is perfect. The shallow and wave less beach is great for kids. The crystal clear water is perfect for snorkeling and enjoying the sea creatures. The beach is large and parking is steps away from the water. We pitched a tent next to a picnic... More

A beautiful and quiet beach. The water was shallow and no waves, making it great for families with young children. There is a small restaurant/bar with umbrellas and chairs to rent. We spent two days on this beach with our children.

Love this beach. The water is quite shallow. Although there are certain parts with seaweed, the other parts are crystal clear. There is an enclosed area that seems to be used for swimming races. There are coconut trees where you can lay out a beach towel, or you can rent a beach chair at the place next to the beach... More
