Shoal Bay is beautiful but it was definitely more crowded than we have ever seen. We picked it years ago for the small crowds there. Definitely not the case anymore. They bring people over by the bus loads plus schools do field trips there. Lovely beach though!

I'm eternally biased in favor of Shoal Bay East as it was the first beach we were based on during my 1st trip to the island in 2002. 12 bliss filled days of sand, sea, yummy food and nice people who made us feel at home. Waking up to that view took my breath away it was so stunning. So for me it would absolutely without a doubt be SBE.

Cove Bay is a beautiful beach as well, and I've enjoyed swimming in the clear turquoise Caribbean sea there. I agree with the previous poster who pointed out that SBE is iconic. Bottom line though, is whichever you choose, it's a WIN-WIN scenario for sure! ROWL! ;~>

Both. No reason to choose. Or. You absolutely can not go wrong.
