Not bad, but I prefer Montagu Beach east of Downtown. Saunders Beach had siltier sand, almost like dust, and there was occasional garbage around, like a few old truck tires. Montagu Beach had better sand, and was clean; in fact, I saw a worker cleaning...More

If you just want to sit and enjoy the water, stop here. Just two Mike's from the cruise port and complete with outdoor showers, restrooms and a children's play area.
