Beautiful area. We went horseback riding in the ocean and it was a wonderful experience. The ride is easy and our guide was great.

There was no one else on this beach when we visited. Ocean is quieter on this side. No amenities. Might not be as pretty as other beaches but if looking for a quiet beach with very few people, this is the place.

Gorgeous view, great swimming, hardly any other people, great shell collecting towards the West end, and Smokeys restaurant if you get hungry.

On the Caribbean side so flat and a lovely walk, then pop round to Maundays Bay for a swim in a beautiful horseshoe bay (next to one another). Lots of shells at the far end by the jetty. Smokey's is a nice lunch spot and there's an Aqua park in the sea. Very calm waters. Horse riding the beach here... More

While this is not the prettiest, or calmest bay on the island, take the time to walk the west end of the beach away from the construction and the inflatables. The point between Cove Bay and Maunday's Bay is a very rough but beautiful walk. You will want tennis shoes. Yes there is seaweed, but if you're in the area,... More

We went to Smokeys and loved the restaurant. The beach is okay, it had a lot of seaweed but was very nice. loved watching the kids play on the water park.

I had hoped to walk from Maundays Beach to Cove Beach to Rendezvous Bay Beach but alas, there were some (highly and understandably) territorial Mama Birds guarding some beach side nests, mid-point beach so I couldn't do as originally intended. It is a beautiful beach, albeit rockier than those it flanks.

A lot of rocks and seaweed. It's nice, but if you have been around this island you will see what I'm talking about. The competition is stiff. Other beaches like Meads Bay and Rendezvous Bay put this bay to shame. There is a Aqua Park for the kids off the beach. Didn't look too fun, but if you have kids... More

This beach is always nice. Unfortunately the rain that occurred this year kept us from enjoying it but there is always next year. You can either rent chairs or find your own piece to relax on this beach.
