Very large waves during our visit, while Hurricane Sandy pounded the eastern seaboard. Difficult to exit when having these large waves.

Amazing beach but beware of the color change. You will go from ankle deep to waist deep! I am staying the Villas at Simpson Bay Resort so some of the staff are all employed by the resort. Beach chairs are available. Staff are friendly.

The locals call this the dog beach because tourists bring their dogs to the beach and unfortunately do not clean up after their pets when they go to the bathroom. Once we learned about this digusting practice we, like ALL the locals, never visited this beach for fear of stepping in or swimming with dog poo.

Kim Sha Beach is great if you bring your dogs. It has a large amount of beach front. However, if you are looking for a touristy beach with a lot of bars and energy, this is not it. It is a natural beach where they don't rake the beach. You have one bar to get drinks and resorts on each side of you. However, this is a very beautiful view of the sea and great views of catamarans.

My husband and I loved this beach. The water was beautiful and the waves were perfect. I honestly don't even know how we came across this beach, but we were certainly glad we did.
