We had fun here, again just a beach. There was a steel drum band there the day we went. So it had some additional perks. I don't know if he is there all week.

We stayed in Little Bay and enjoyed snorkeling daily. The water stays pretty calm even when the afternoon storms kicked in.

When we were there in May 2017, we saw a male sting ray, a squid, a flounder and many other colors of fish. The waters were calm too. Great for beginner snorkelers.

One of over 25 similar public beaches on the island. A definite MUST VISIT is the Sunset Bar and beach when ever a jumbo jetliner is approaching Princess Juliana Airport to land. You will never forget this experience - bring a camera and hang on.

Sure, splashing on the big cruise ships is fun, but there's nothing like swimming in the deep, clear, warm waters of the ocean with a sandy beach to lie on, with room to spare!

Sand is clean and soft and water is calm. Its just right for a not too strong swimmer to swim with ease.

The beach is so pristine and serene. An excellent spot for swimming, snorkeling or jus lounging around. The Divi little provides free umbrellas to all guests.
