This beach is stunning, white sand extending out and round the corner of the rocky outcrops are amazing coral reefs and fish also if you swim a little further offshore you are likely to see turtles! We had an amazing day here and if you...More
Hit up this beach at the end of tour of island. Its a bit small in width, there is bar at end called shipwreck with free chairs and umbrellas. The sand is black for the most part. The water is warm and snorkeling Isn't that...More
The taxi drivers all bring you to Carambola beach club, where you can rent chairs and umbrellas for about USD 10 apiece.
It's already a narrow strip of beach, what with renovations going on both sides (a huge platform going up on one and pipes...More
This may be the best beach on the island but it does not come close to the beaches on St. Martin, St.John, Anguilla or many of the other islands we've been on. As mentioned below the sand is not very wide, maybe 10-15 ft and...More
Beach is relatively tight against the water, but we really enjoyed our time at south friars. Plenty of chairs/covering, right next to a bunch of restaurants/bars and a reef right off the coast where you can snorkel: saw some really cool fish and a sea...More
we got off the ship and asked for recommendations from a taxi driver for a snorkeling beach South Friers Bay was his suggestion. $4 per person got us there, and he wanted us to pay for the return in advance. Ha! Got to be kidding...More
Near the end of our tour we stopped at Friars Beach. Unfortunately, it started to rain as we arrived.
Beach is quite narrow especially at the south end. There is a swimming platform anchored about 25 yards from shore and the water is appealing.
The beach had both medium waves for the more experienced swimmers and a perfectly calm, crystal clear cove for snorkeling. Chaise lounge and umbrella rentals are available. The bar and restaurant are amazing and reasonably priced. There is a separate children's menu that caters to...More
Finished off here at the end of a tour.
Very narrow volcanic sand beach with free beds and shades.
Snorkelling was ok but beware of sea urchins.
Nice bar and restaurant, changing facilities and WC.
Monkeys on back of beach are entertaining!

Taxi from port cost $7pp. All of you will feet in one car. Taxi stops on Carambola beach club. Sun beds cost $10 pp and shared umbrella(good size) also $10. They give you wristband and you could also use facilities (from 9am there is a person checking wristband at front of restrooms). Drinks at bar are $10 for cocktails and $4 for local beer. You will need to arrange pick up time to port. Water at see was shallow and clean.
You could snorkel on right side of the beach. This is a Caribbean side and water was warmer.
