“The Place for Wind Sports”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Not far past Trunk Bay, this beach is best if wind sports is your thing. The beach is very nice with some rugged areas near the fringes but with a constant breeze, windsurfing or sailing is king here. A rental shop is right on the beach and they have everything you need. You'll see lots of locals at this beach and they are very willing to share tips with you.Great views of the BVI from this location as well.

“great quiet beach relax and enjoy”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Whatever you want to do here is great whether its just relax, swim, snorkel, scuba, play in the sand or just plain nothing. This place is great and the best thing is you have camping facilities as well as places within the park for overnighting. If you are in St John for the day like I was just drop by, you can drive there and enjoy it, clean turqouise water and white sand

“Amazing snorkeling out by the island!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Had one of the best snorkeling experiences I have ever had here (and I've been snorkeling all over). Saw sting rays, tons of beautiful fan coral, tangs, snapper, Caribbean reef squid (they were GORGEOUS), and best of all, ended up swimming with eight tarpon that were almost as big as me! To have it all to yourself, get here in the morning although this is high tide time and there will be quite a few jellyfish (their sting is more like an aggravating mosquito bite/bee sting than anything, but can get annoying). I loved it so much, I really didn't care about the jellyfish! Nice little restaurant here too, as well showers and restrooms. If you aren't in to snorkeling, the beach is very sandy and wonderful for children and the elderly as well. Can't wait to go back!!

Beautiful views & water. Bring your own chairs or rent them from the beach shop. Bathrooms and showers nearby. No frills beach, but that's our favorite kind : )
