“Wonderful place”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

You simply can't find a better place to kick back and enjoy a few local cold ones. Rent a beach chair sit back and enjoy. It simply doesn't get better than this beach. While in Bequia make sure you try some bitter lemon. It's refreshing and wonderful just like the beach.

“One of the best beaches in the Caribbean!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have been sailed to most islands in the Caribbean and this beach is one of the very best. For swimming you can't beat it with the long sandy coastline. Onshore are nice beach bars to pick up a beer and pass the time. The soft sand is great for lounging and the views are a series of scenic paradise! There is also pretty good holding off the beach for a lunchtime anchorage.

“snorkel & swim”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Lower Bay and Princess Margaret beaches are very similar. Nice for swim or snorkel. Easy snorkeling at the ends of these beaches, where the rocky headlands jut out. Many small fish, grunts, parrotfish. Not much coral. Lots of urchins.
On foot you can reach an easy snorkeling spot (good with kids) and swim beach very near the Port Elizabeth town center: Walk south on the Belmont walkway along the shoreline to its very end, in front of the abandoned hotel, at the small sandy beach adjacent to the rock headland. Snorkel out along the headland in rocky shallow water (4-6 feet) to see large schools of grunt fish and some others, with a few soft corals. You can snorkel completely around this headland to 'Jacks Bar' at the northern end of Princess Margaret beach.

“Beautiful beach with many restaurants”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Lower Bay has a beautiful beach with many waterfront restaurants to choose from. A great spot to watch sunsets. Seems to be more popular with locals than Princess Margaret Beach.

“Beautiful clear water and white sandy beach”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

It was a gorgeous beach. One if the best on Bequia. It was clean with no glass on the beach and hassle free. A real jewel.
