Owner description: A clean and friendly beach where a variety of sea life, including squid and sea urchin, reside.
Reviewed 12 November 2017

The beach near the Shipwreck Bar was volcanic ash and was black mixed with sand. Very narrow beach, chairs hard to find and rocky water was cloudy . I would walk further down and there appeared to be a much wider beach with a restaurant also.

We enjoyed a day at this beach going to Discovery beach bar.. Morci was a great host, bartender and chef. We enjoyed the beach and 1 member of out small group even took his dog Dynamite for a walk which tired him out and he slept under her chair the rest of the day.. Morci is a 1 man show so remember you are on island time and enjoy...

If your looking for a Clearwater beach than you need to go here. Gorgeous waters, you can see the fish swimming next to you. You can rent daybeds for $10/each, and umbrellas $10/each. You can buy lunch and yummy drinks to keep you cool. There are nice facilities.
We will be definitely going back.

No real beach to speak of- extremely narrow and not soft sand. We ended up leaving to Cockleshell instead. Looked like snorkeling would be decent. Restrooms were little more than outhouses. Not an appealing beach. Best thing here were the wild monkeys - all over the place.

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!
