Beach where the ocean and stream meet. Lovely place to unwind. Photograpehrs dream. Many focal points of beauty. Swings and ropes over the water. You can literally float from the stream to the ocean, like your own personal body ride. This is now my favorite...More

A beautiful beach and kind staff at the gate and serving on the beach. Drinks, meals and snacks. Beach asks for 10 usd entrance fee but is well worth it. Car parked safely on the park premises. Also gardens are truly beautiful.

Frenchman,s Cove is the perfect place to visit a beach with a gorgeous fresh water spring winding into the sea. The sugary sand is special and it lends itself to kids. There is an admission charge but I have to say it is worth it...More

Our favourite beech in Porty, there is an entrance fee and a sun bed rental fee but we felt it was worth it, the sea was warm here and you can walk out into the sea without treading on and rocks. A nice beech restaurant...More

We showed up. We stayed at Goblin Hill and drove over to Frenchman's Cove. As I mentioned in my review, you must pay $10/person. Which we did, but only stayed about 5-10 minutes. Overall we found the people operating... More
