We have a few must visit beaches we go to every year, this is one of them. The snorkeling is great. The turtles made their appearance and we even saw a small shark. Great exploring, great fun!

Did an afternoon here recently during our week stay on the island. Our last trip we were somewhat let down because of the garbage that had accumulated on the beach. This trip was a nice reminder of why we fell in love with this location....More

On of the best swimming beaches on an island full of really really good beaches. A bit tough to access but not as tough as several. Because of it's geography either the south side or the north side is always calm.

The dirt road after you leave the pavement is not great getting there. Not a lot of parking. We all trucked the half mile to the beach toting our snorkeling gear. It wasn't great snorkeling.

This was really a peaceful place. You can access it through the Villa Allamanda - but the last stretch of road may be scary. The other way to access it is to take the road opposite French leave resort. Just before you get to the...More

This beach is worth the trek up the difficult road. Two different bodies of water and some nice rocks to scurry over, but wow!

This is a very interesting place, with mirror images of twin coves separated by a narrow strip of sand. Beautiful, calm coves to laze around in and this is a great photo opp too. So unique, it's a must see!
