This was by far our favorite beach on the island. Although, crowded it had everything we were looking for in our stay. We rented snorkling gear, and saw the most amazing display of fish. There was two areas, divided by a sand bar. One was more kid friendly, and one was more adventurous. There is bathroom facilities, and a place to rinse your feet. Roosters roam the beach, and were quite entertaining. There is also plenty of picnic tables, and grassy areas. Bring your beach chairs, and get a place in the shade and a parking spot early.

The best part of this beach is it's diversity, a great family beach as it has a protected inlet with les waves and curents for young children, a great reef area with great viewing of tropical fish for the snorkelers, an area of good surf for the suffers especially beginners. It has good facilities for a cookout and decent bathrooms. It also has restaurants like Brenneckes and Casa di Amici nearby and access to restaurants at the new Marriott.

What a day (actually two) we had at this place!!! The first day we went snorkeling here was unbelievable - and we went EVERYWHERE on the island. Partly cause my husband lost 2 wedding rings that day (don't ask) which ended up coming back to us - island love - partly because the lifeguards on duty are the BEST (Aaron & Miles) and because we swam with sea turtles (3 of them!) for hours!!! If you want to take your family out this is the spot. The beach has a park with bathrooms and outside shower, easy parking and a bay with lifeguard tower on one side. Then there is a huge sandbar and open ocean on the other for the more adventurous. Seriously a great place and ask the lifeguard to show you his artwork - it's pretty amazing too!! It's a great place to bring a picnic and just relax for the day... but don't wear your rings snorkeling!

This is a very nice and pretty large public beach. It was never over crowded and there is good parking.
