We spent a day on Honeymoon beach and there were only a dozen or so others there. Relaxing! A cheap and quick trip from STT and a quiet day. There is a small bar on the beach but we took drinks and snacks with us.

Very quite and out of the way with a mediocre beach compared to the rest of the 3 islands. Very Quite with a lot of Boats in the scene.

This is a quiet, relaxing, safe place for families to spend a vacation. It reminded me of a "northwoods cabin" vacation, but in a tropical setting. The sea instead of a lake, a palm trees instead of pines, tortoises & iguanas instead of squirrels & raccoons. We enjoyed hiking, snorkeling, and of course sitting on the beaches.

Boat or Ferry Ride required. Rent a golf cart ahead of time for use while there. You will need it to access all sights!
