I should say that almost all the major beaches in Bequia are beautiful. I visited here though on a very busy day over the Easter weekend. It's a pretty long beach with a small rock formation near the middle of the beach which allowed young...More

Unbelievable beach with very few people. The sand is perfect, the beach is long, the water is amazing - go to the far right side of the beach for some good snorkelling.

Very good beach for swimming and less busy than some. A bit less commercial than Princess Margaret as there are no restaurants or bars here. Very quiet.

White sand, turquoise waters make this beach feel like you are in Paradise. Lunch can be had on the deck overlooking the beach. The ocean is picturesque with the sailboats anchored there. Certainly a place to visit.

We stayed at the north end of Lower Bay Beach for 2 weeks in early December. We walked to/from Port Elizabeth at least a dozen times. It is a lovely walk along the beach ... no need to climb up high to the main road... More
