“Quieter than Great Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is a lovely beach dominated by two large hotels. Don't let that stop you from visiting. None of the hotels own the sand and you can just park and walk out to the beach.

“Our favorite beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was the favorite beach for my wife and I. It's not huge but we found the sand to be perfect, the water and waves more to our liking than most of the other beaches, excellent views of Saba and cruise ships coming and going and a couple of good beach bars (we ate at Gizmo's). Fort Amsterdam is worth a stroll over to as well for the outstanding views.

“No need to look anywhere else”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Whether you are staying at Divi Little Bay or the Belair Hotel this beach is by far one of the best on the island. Not overly crowded and waves are perfect. If you get off a ship and want something a little quieter than the beach in Philipsburg... THIS is the one!

“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The view is spectaculer. It is excluded & you can see cruise ships approaching the island. It is within walking distance of the great shopping on front street. The restaurant is good enough to stay & eat on site.
