“Water Cay/Ivory Point”
Reviewed July 8, 2011

I almost regret writing this review, as this hidden treasure may not remain hidden afterwards.

This beach is located on the north shore across the water from George Town and the touristy areas. Take Shamrock to Bodden Town Road to Frank Sound Road left to N Side Road/Rum Point Road left on Water Cay (just before entering Rum Point). Park in circle at end of Water Cay by the Ivory Point sign/entry. This is an abandoned condo complex that only has an entrance gate and a short road inside. Walk down the road til you reach the beach, which is roughly two minutes away.

Not only do you see starfish along the shore, snorkeling reveals so much more. In plastic pipes offshore you see lion fish, schools of silvery fish, and the occasional conch. Travel further north along the shore to find abandoned conch shells filled with bright blue or yellow juvenile fish. Out further you see cassiopea jellyfish (bell down on the bottom and ten feet down so you won't get stung) and some larger starfish. And on the beach keep an eye out for tiny hermit crabs.

The beach is relatively deserted except for a couple small boats of tourists that land on the point. They usually leave after a half hour or hour.

“exciting time for kids/adults and sea stars (starfish) are close to beach”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

Pick up rental car at cruise port. It's around a 45 minute drive to point with lots of photo ops on the way. You will find several sea stars ranging from 6 inch babies to 12 inch adults. Wonderful learning experience for all ages. No fees other than rental car. Restaurant/facilities nearby.
