“Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is the closest beach to Goblin Hill, it's not large, but it's small and cozy. You can walk from the Villa to the beach. Really nice and clean. The cove is a nice place for your family to have fun.

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The most beautiful beach I have even laid eyes on. This beach reminds me of the happiest days of my childhood. Seeing my own children play here has been a dream come true.

“Nice quiet beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Visited here with some friends whose relatives live nearby. They serve drinks & food, so it's easy to lose track of the hours in the day. It costs about $10US per person, but well worth it. Clean, beautiful and serene.
It also has a creek that runs into it, making the water a bit cooler than other beaches in the Caribbean. You can also swim in the creek and you don't have waves beating you if the surf is Rough.
If they were to add a volleyball net, it would be perfect

“Lunch on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Frenchman's cove is beautiful, just watch out for the currents when you get further out into the sea. The water at the junction of the river and sea is pretty cold. Quite a few birds and plant fauna to see on the way there --- one tree was in full bloom and the parrots were eating the blossoms --- the pink flowers where slowly falling from the sky like a scene from heaven. Lunch on the beach is well worth it (just remember Lobster season is closed in May --- so you can't and shouldn't get them during this time) if lobster is in season, no better place to have it than on the beach at Frenchman's cove
