“Family beach”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

This is a beach for families. The sea is shallow and therefore warm and safe for children. If you want to relax go to a different beach.

“Excellent Swimming”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This lovely beach and green area is a great place for body surfing waves...be very careful of the undertow...the Brook section is a great place for children and adults to play in the brook as it flows out to the waves of the Ocean...on this side of the beach the waves are not as large and there is no undertow.
This is a great place to Picnic and there are outdoor fireplaces to cook.
There is also a cooking hut with tables and there is a swing set and sliding boards.

Such good waves and scenery, great sand and swimming water. Although there was a mysterious sulfur waterfall abour 50 yards away — whats going on there?

I enjoyed the high waves and enjoyed a swim while I was there. There were alot of families there. This was a busy beach when I was there.

“Go for a dip here”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Good little stop on your way home from a trip around the island or on your first leg of your trip. If travelling in the summer, and the weather is good, plan for a quick dip and for time on the beach. A good place for a little walk. Nice open ocean. Good for swimming, resting, sun bathing or catching a nap...
