An absolute treat to the eyes, perfect blue water, blue skies on a perfect Caribbean day. On the right is the nudist beach with a crowd of keen participants strutting their stuff. Lots of umbrella's and chars to hide their stuff if you have children...More

Went as an option from a cruise. My suggestion is just grab a towel and use the beach in town its clean, convenient, free and calm.

This is a beautiful beach that was spoiled with too much seaweed. Coco Beach Club was nice but the water wasn't.

This place is very good and comfortable but continuous wind is sometimes annoying. Seaweed is also not a good experience.

We stayed near the beach bar Bikini and it was great. Good food. Strong wifi. The activities are expensive but good. Kids got the trampoline for $10 each for the day. Water is a bit wavy because on the Atlantic side but still no issue....More

Not sure how much it is there but in Orient beach it's like $40-$50 per person for Parasail for about 15 minutes & Jetski is about same price too for 30 minutes. But you've got to go to a couple spots & haggle to get a deal... More
