If you are coming into the island from a cruise, have the Cab driver take you to South Friars and go to Discovery Beach Bar for beach chairs, drinks and amazing food!

The views from this beach are great. We were dropped off at the Carambola beach club which had nice facilities and an excellent view of the mountains at the other end of the beach. There was more seaweed than I prefer but the water was still fairly clear and lots of fun to swim in. The Shipwreck bar and grill was not too far of a walk at the other end of the beach and it was my favorite part of our stay at this beach. It was a lot of fun to have lunch and a couple drinks while watching the monkeys.

Lots of little bars to pass the time in this attractive beach, water is lovely but watch out for spiney sea urchins. Easy to get too and some nice fish to see.

We really enjoyed this taxi ride from the Port.
It was a fairly quiet beach along with many other Cruise peeps. Good snorkeling. Our older son and my husband saw some sea anemones and many tropical fish. There was a resort with bathroom and drink service. We did not pay to rent a chair. Brought our towels from the ship. Bring lots of water with you also.

Went here for lunch at the Shipwreck Bar and stayed to snorkel. As noted in other reviews, the beach is pretty narrow but it's long and very nice and the snorkeling was pretty good. A nice out of the way place to snorkel (long way from the cruise ship we came in on!).
