“Great Swimming Beach”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Easy water access and gentle waves with warm ocean water. Snorkeling was good as well with many turtles.

“Sand so fine”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

The sand here was among the best of any beach I've been to. It was soft and very fine, easy to walk on barefoot. Whether you think it good or bad, the beach is not that long. It would take you about 15 minutes to walk from one end to the other. 3 hotels sit on this beach and all put chairs and umbrellas out. Non-guests can rent them, although there were very few non-guests to be found. There were no annoying beach vendors patrolling the sand for customers. Faces west so you get a great view of the sunset.

“ANOTHER GREAT BEACH”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My family loves this beach. The water is mostly calm and easy to swim in. You can even snorkel here right off the beach. The view is beautiful. They have plenty of public parking with a short walk to the beach.

“Superb beach very safe”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

A very safe beach, great for families with little kids. couple rock formations to the south of it great snorkeling place. But you must go there early 8-9:30. After that gets a bit choppy and then in the afternoon the Tradewinds start kicking in.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We saw a family of dolphins everyday we were there. We saw whales outside in the Bay. Such a beautiful beach. We loved the scene. You can see the other islands from the beach.
