relaxed atmosphere at Jacob Taylor Beach

great to drive to and go for a walk/wander. Couple of local bars with local food, meet the locals midweek. Bit busier at weekends. Very laid back and its free!

Someone needs to take a good look at this venue. It is rundown and not cared for. A complete waste to time to visit. I am not sure it should be offered as a national treasure as it only reflects the locals not taking control of their environment and not showing off their potential. It was embarrassing to visit.

I've read the other reviews and am perplexed, because they don't accurately describe what I just experienced (October 2016). The beach is not that pretty, nor is the sand. The views are amazing if you look out into the sea but nowhere else. There are no amenities (no bathrooms, chairs, umbrellas, etc.). There is a shack that sells limited food... More

Never miss Fisherman's Beach when we're at Silver Sands! Always make a night of it at LeRoys, food and beer at Julets too. I have a wood carving from almost everyone here. The people are the best and happy to call them my friends!

The beaches small and quiet secluded a great place to go and think. There were a few vendors that didn't hand you just had what they had for sale. A little shop with snacks. And a small Beach with White Sands. Large green grass area that children played soccer and some of the locals joined in it was a great... More

I don't know what happened to to this little "village", but there was nothing there!! I read all the very positive reviews and we decided we would skip shore excursions and go directly to Jacob Taylor Beach for the day. BIG MISTAKE! We knew we were in the right place from the picture posted here. But no people - save... More

We went to this location in January with COURTNEY TAYLOR TOURS and found his service to be exceptional. He provided 11 of us with chairs and a very secluded beach area a short distance from Jacob Taylor Beach. I think the locals called it Duncans Bay. When we were returning to this area in October I again contacted Courtney Taylor... More

This is my all time favorite place to shop when I go to Silver Sands I always go over and see everyone, just sit and chat with them to catch up. They are so kind and generous. They never hassle you on trying to buy something. They let you go in and look around answer any of your questions. They... More
