Beautiful serene beach surrounded by caves. However, this beach like others in the area has been devastating affected by the sea weed. Hopefully, this will pass and the water and beach area will be cleaned up soon. ACCESSIBILITY: Must be able to walk down a...More

We made the mistake of asking for Coconut cocktails before checking the price. The guy then charged us 57 USD for 6 coconuts ! He was quite intimidating and so we did not argue much. Shame that the Barbarians authorities allow these type of vendors.

It's just wonderful looking at this beach after bad roads, bad parking lot and a number of steps leading down to the sand. Very few people around so it's very peaceful except for wind and waves. Surrounded by cliffs on both sides. Beautiful palm trees...More

We called here early on day about 10am. Place was deserted and we had the whole beach to ourselves. Very pretty beach with tall bendy palms swaying in the wind. Well worth a trip.

This is not a beach for swimming, but it is great for chilling out and playing as a family. As we sat on our deck chairs (bring your own) I thought I might not be the richest man in the world, but their must be...More

A beach with a less-than-fabulous name that will blow you away with its beauty. In fact, I thought the cover photo for this beach was my own photo snapped with my average digital camera - because there is no need for a filter, it's exactly...More

Probably the most beautiful beach on the island. It's rather small but the beach is framed by small cliffs and beautiful palm trees. However, the seaweed was about two feet thick. Personally, I would not return until the nasty stuff is gone as the smell...More

Although this beach can be reached by bus, it's quite a long distance (1/2 mile) from the bus stop. It would be the best to take a taxi or drive there yourself. The road down to the beach is in very bad shapes with many,...More

The road is kind of off-road and really rough yet you drive literally through residential areas until you make it to a small parking "lot" on the rocks/dirt (can't miss it). I don't recall the signs, we used the google maps... More

i would look into Sapphire Beach condos. We just stayed there and we know the owners of a few condos. Very safe, Guards on duty, gated. Nice restaurants very close. Feel free to ask me for more details.

Its a bit in the middle of nowhere so you need a car and there are no bars or restaurants near by. Being on the beach alone, although seemed safe, may be a little daunting for a lady alone, but the locals and beach sellers... More
