Other than available beach chairs (some are in poor shape) everything is nice and tropical here. Occassionally there is a chop due to weather offshore but it is rare. Rib shack at one end of beach which is shared by several resorts but public access is available (I believe) at all beaches.

Overall Little Bay Beach is a really nice beach. The reason for a rating of 4 instead of 5 is that it gets a lot of people from the resorts that are on it (however it has way fewer people than nearby Great Bay/Philipsburg Beach). I prefer a more secluded option, but if you dont mind having a few people around that it is a really nice beach. There is great snorkeling off the shore on the east end of the beach. Rent some fins, a mask and snorkel and swim out along the rock wall on the east side of beach. There is a little bit of rock that juts out maybe 100 yards from shore that you can swim out to. There are tons of fish along the way. 100 yards sounds like a lot but it is a super easy swim with the snorkel and fins since it takes almost no effort to stay afloat in the ocean. The water is really calm and there is plenty to see as long as you stay close to the rocks by the shore. Definitely worth your time!

The whole beach is basically only used by the Divi resort clients so it doesn't get very crowded. Food/drinks can be bought from the (quite expensive) shops and restaurants of the resort.
