Overview

If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

Quiet, secluded, clothing optional beach. Not crowded, gentle sea usually,,,, but beach can change like most on the island day to day depending on sea conditions.

This beach is one of the coolest beaches I've ever been to. With cliffs and shaded caves lining the shore, be sure to get up early and claim a cave with a good swimming spot. You can relax and be free here. Although on the...More

We love Cupecoy Beach. However, the amount of sand comes and goes. It depends on the time of year. Parts of the beach are favored by nudists.

There are still steps to all parts of this beach but the sand is variable since the hurricane in the early 90's. It tends to move up and down the beach quite dramatically. It is still very much worth a visit. Dany is still... More
