We spent a couple days at this beach, as it was only a 10 min walk from where we were staying. Definitely a beautiful place. Large enough that you don't have strangers right beside you, so it never felt crowded. And it was refreshing to see it wasn't just for tourists, locals were there on the weekend too. There were...

A lovely beach with a great bar restaurant (Jacks). You can hire sunbeds on this pristine beach and the sea is a lovely aquamarine.

We liked this beach as an afternoon stop on our sailing trip. It is small with good sand and clear water. We really liked the walk over from the town. Along the harbor there are several houses and resorts to admire. On the south end of the harbor there is a sign that the path to Princess Margaret Beach is... More

We visited at least six of the beaches on bequia. This is by far the nicest. A few local vendors renting beach chairs and selling Drinks and gifts. We found faye and her lovely family to be the best. Many places with easy access and gentle slopping sand to enter the water from. Sea is calm with an array of... More

A very good beach with relatively calmer waters. The only things to note is the presence of two machanieel trees (with poison leaves and fruit-please do not touch eat or shelter under) and a very bad access road which is steep and slightly winding . Good for a hike. Very good location indeed.

Great beach, was never populated so that is a huge plus. Snorkeling is good but best around the rocky "head". If driving there, the road to get to the beach is in dire need of help. Thankfully we have Colorado style off road experience so this wasn't an issue but if you are not use to a rather broken up... More

This is the archetypal Caribbean beach. Soft sand, warm sea, a few souvenir stalls, and of course Jack's Bar. Arrive by water taxi from Port Elizabeth to the jetty by Jack's for a romantic evening or drive down a very rough track to get to the beach.

Great spot for relaxing. One of our favourite beaches. Don't forget to visit Fay for a cold beer or a great rum punch!
