“Nice and quiet”
Review of Governor's Beach

We tried several public beaches on the island, and this was our favorite. It wasn't super crowded, and there was always enough parking. Definitely recommend, especially if you don't want crowds of people around. The downside of a quieter beach like this is that there weren't umbrellas or chairs available to rent like the other, more popular beaches.

It was remote and private, not the busy beach like in Seven Mile area. However, the snorkeling wasn't the best... way too shallow and too much grass (which is why I knocked a pt down). If going there to lay out or to have a picnic, it's a good choice as there was a single table available and is a nice beautiful scenic beach.

The beach was clean, and has nice snorkeling in front of it. In fact, we thought it had more fish than the Cemetery Reef further north. A bit far for my 6 y/o to swim there unassisted, but plenty close enough for him to swim out on my back :)
