“Great location, bring your snorkel gear.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This beach is one of the cleanest in the caribbean, it's as good as Grand Caymen without the cruise ships. Look for the "Polis" station at the southern end of the beach near the Divi Phoenix, you'll see a pile of rocks a couple of hundred feet out in the water, that is the best, easiest, most accessible snorkeling in the Carribean, just walk out . We packed an inflatable mat this time so we'd save the 5 dollar a day charge we usually pay, it's like floating in a pool. Super Food has opened a new market near the beach, it's a good place to stock up your room's fridge. Car or no car?, there are plenty of restaurants, casinos and shopping in walking distance so you really don't "need" the car, and most packages offer a reasonable transfer option. I've been there about 6 times and I'll keep goin back.

“Best Beach Ever!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

You can walk for miles on the beautiful white sand. There are so my fun pier bars and beach bars where you can feel like your one of the locals.

“nice beach better than baby beach”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

if you have a room on palm beach don't bother renting a car to go to baby beach. it is much nicer and cleaner here. why bother going to baby beach where you have rent everything. the sand on baby beach is not as clean as palm beach. much nicer here.

“Not my cup of tea”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Commercial, busy, crowded, macho. Not my cup of tea. Very loud too, lots of music everywhere, it is like Las Vegas on a beach. The shops are nice though, and the 'strip'. But the beach is not my cup of tea.
