Runaway Beach is one of the less busy beaches within a very short distance of St Johns and is easily accessed by taxi. It's a good length for walking and is often near deserted. It's a good swimming beach, and is popular with locals, particularly in the early morning.
Few amenities are now available, so it's probably worth bringing your own refreshments.
