“My family loved South Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

The water was at a perfect temperature and the waves were what made my 10 year old son have the best time ever. The water gets deep quickly and do not recommend little ones to be more than 2 inches away from parents. FUN!

“Finally.. a beach with waves!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

That's what my 8 year olds said when we got to the beach and they saw waves!! They were thrilled and loved this beach because of the rough waves! We visited many beaches while on the island and most were very serene. They were thrilled to see the waves and make use of their boogie boards.

Be careful with little ones!

Pack a lunch and plenty of drinks, I didnt see any food places nearby.

“Cold rough water, but lots of beachy room!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Excellent views, nice deep sand, crashing waves, and facilities just at the end of the road. I'd be extra careful with little children; the currents looked really strong...and my 12-year-old wore himself out playing in the breakers...perfect!
