Attraction details
Owner description: This beach has two faces: a quit spot to relax in a lounge chair and sip tropical drinks purchased from the beach bar; or, a sporty beach to snorkel, windsurf, sail and play volleyball. The choice is yours.

It's an up and down hill walk fro guest of Frenchmans Cove, but worth it! Not overly crowed beach and a bit more surf than the Cove's beach. While we were here, not as many children as the Cove's beach too. Easy access to everything you need with good food and beverage from either Coco Joe's or Havana Blue.

Pricey, but worth the visit. Cocoa Joes overlooks the sea, burgers are $18 dollars- ridiculous- but Frenchman reef and morning star beach is an experience, as the resort has everything you need. This is a Five star resort

We snorkeled, kayaked, swam, build, boogieboarded (although the waves are small), built some awesome sandcastles, and just relaxed. Coco Joe's and The Sand Bar are Marriott dining establishments on the beach and they have some adequate appetizers, sandwiches, and drinks but they are a little overpriced. The Marriott pool is the best on the Marriott property. You can get free shuttle rides to both Marriott properties, which come in handy if you have a lot of beach stuff to haul. Just arrive early if you want to use\rent any of the water toys or get towels because they are all claimed\rented by 9:00 am.

Great beach with good restaurant and bars right there. Wonderful place to spend some time, have a drink or lunch.

The beach is very clean and plenty of chaise lounge chairs with umbrellas. The water is very clear and warm. The attendants are not the most friendliest of people, but fortunately you only have to deal with them for towels. If you are staying at the Morningstar Resort it right out the door of each unit. If you are staying at the Marriott Hotel it is a few minutes walk. If you are staying at the Marriott's Frenchman's Cove Villas it is about a 10 minute walk. A shuttle is also available.
