If you want what feels like your own private beach this is the place to go. Easy to get to and to bring your snacks for the day...such a nice quite piece of paradise.

It's a protected wild magnific lagoon and always very calm! a perfect place to be quietly if you want to be in peacefulness and alone.

Went to check it out, not much parking, lots of seaweed, didn't look all that impressive, we didn't stay.

This is a beautiful beach and very secluded...but it is too hard to enter the water along most of it, due to rocks all along the shore. If you can get past the rocks...it is very nice to float. Turtles can be seen on the left side of cove....if you are lucky enough to see them.

It is petite! This is the beach I had as my view while my friends and I stayed at a villa in petite cul de sac. The water is quite calm and it is technically public but kept private. There are rocks all along the beach in the water so its not the most comfortable beach to swim around. But... More

This is a smaller beach and has a lot of rock in the water. But there are sandy openings to swim. And, the turtles like the rocks so you can see them feeding and swimming in there. It is never crowded, but a quiet, smaller sandy beach.

This was our first visit to this beach in particular. Seems we always missed the turn off before. But, this time we made it and took our snorkel gear and had the beach to ourselves. Not the prettiest beach for SB....but unique in it's own way. The turtles that we saw were wonderful and seemed to be rather used to... More

Located in a reserve, and not over built yet,this beach is nearly at Le Toiney and not worth the effort to find or go to.

Loved the marine wildlife here. In addition to usual reef fish, I saw a conch field, a stingray, a sea turtle and two reef sharks.
