“Sandy beach”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Pleasant surroundings - this was a perfect location for the "Island Fish Fry" we attended, with great views of the ocean and sunset enjoyed during our evening meal.

“Protected bay and snorkelling opportunities”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Safe swimming in the bay but if you want to snorkel enter at Slaughter Bay around low tide for best viewing...clear water and lots of fish...that like to follow you!!!!Just follow the channel around and into Emily Bay

“Best Beach on the Island”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

We went to Emily Bay practically every day we were on the island. Lovely warm, clear water, and a nice sandy beach.The beach is protected by the reef, and has good changing and toilet facilities. We were surprised that it appeared to be used mostly by the locals, and there weren't a lot of visitors there at the time we went - usually late afternoon.
