“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

There is a lovely little information center and we had an AMAZING lunch at Aggie's (truly one of the best meals of our entire trip, and it was really reasonably priced).

“Stunning beach - worth the drive if combined with Belmont”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Small area that is safe for swimming behind the coral formations. but the setting is absolutely stunning. Pics speak for themselves.

“Safer swimming near Levera”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

As the beach at Bathways is protected by a limestone reef, the sea is much safer to enter than at Levera. However, it is still quite restricted. Alot of local people go to Bathways, but mainly sit in the water and chat - it's not really for proper swimming. The seas on the the Atlantic side of the island are rougher than the Caribbean side, although we were told that seas in December are particularly rough, so it might be better at other times of the year. Also, do go to Aggie's if you get the chance - it overlooks the beach. Aggie is a real character and cooks great local food. The fried lambie was much better than I had eaten in an expensive hotel in the South

“Good to see but not the best beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Great BBQ at one of the shacks on the beach, levera is much prettier than bathway, but you do pass it on the way there so worth a stop for the view.

“Lovely place to chill but BEWARE!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

This a lovely beach to chill take a swim or have a bite to eat, BUT BEWARE cars have been broken into here, so never leave any valuables in the car and park where you can see it. Please read my review on Levera Beach you will be shocked !!
