You can walk-hike to this beach. Make sure to be in runners or hiking shoes. Not as pretty as Princess Margaret beach however it does have a local vibe. The locals hang out / Lime here listening to music and while bbq-ing in the parking. Local children are playing on the beach with their peers and parents.

There's nice snorkeing at the points. The beach is Caribbean gorgeous. There are places to eat and hang out It is possible to swim good distances from the far end of Lower Baycand around the point to Princess Margaret. I love to swim and this was my favorite beach in Becquai.

Take a taxi to Da Reef then stroll down to the best beach on the island. Swim snorkel or just walk. Wonderful.

Like other reviews this is a good beach with good eateries but Princess Margaret beach is the best in my view. Depending where you are staying it may not be worth the effort in getting here. Cheers Brian - Home Exchange 50plus

We were at this beach for about 3 days while staying at Keegan's. It never felt crowded and there were lots of trees to provide shade from the sun. Entry to the water is relatively easy, but it's gets deep fairly quickly so our small kids didn't go out far. Snorkelling is amazing here as you can see quite a... More

This is the second (after Princess Margaret) beach on the island. It is calm with lovely sand and has plenty of places to eat/drink in close proximity. Well worth a visit.

The swimming is extraordinary in the warm, usually calm sea. There are plenty of fish to see on several reefs & it's a family friendly beach that is seldom crowded.

Be very careful with this beach. I would not recommend to non-swimmers or young children as the tide is unpredictable and it can get deep at the shore. Otherwise a lovely place with gorgeous scenery. Check out Princess Margaret further up the road
