We arrived at Chatham Bay via David's Beach hotel boat. There is also land access to the beach but it is a fair hike down and uphill to do so. The bay has a small m/hotel at one end but otherwise is inhabited by a few islanders who have set up small supply, food or drink establishments. A well-prepared seafood/lobster... More

We traveled to Chatham Bay on the Yannis. The waters are very calm, and you enter from the boat. They have a "noodle" for you if you are timid about swimming. While here, we saw squid, sea stars, trumpet fish, along with a variety of other tropical fish. Nice sheltered area!

Nice place to pull a ship into. We stopped,there on Island Windjammers tall ship Diamant. The beach has a couple small bars and will do a great bonfire for groups

If we had paid for a trip here we would have been angry. Check the water is clear before coming here.

Bay was beautiful, wooded and secluded. But if you're in a boat, beware the wind - it swings around all over the place! One American boat nearly came a cropper on the rocks when the wind changed while they were away from their boat in the tender. Make sure you anchor far enough away from the cliffs and rocks and...

We did this as a day trip from Palm Island. The owner of the small bar on the beach welcomed us, told us where the best snorkeling was, and that we were welcome to use his loungers while we were there. The snorkeling _ for newbies _ was great, the bay was lovely. We will definitely go back next time... More

Best accessible by boat but can be got to on foot although it's a bit of a treck. There is a great little bar/restaurant with sun loungers which serves a small range of drinks and freshly cooked BBQ food (mainly seafood), further down there is a small at ran by a local Rastafarian fisherman who is very sweet and friendly...

Beautiful bay and good exercise walking there from Clifton. Wonderful long beach and great snorkeling. Walked up to the old gun platform and cannon. A bit tricky getting there as it is not marked and you will need a hat and good sandals at least. Woodsy, cactus, thorn bushes, low branches encountered. But, once there, gorgeous view of entire Chatham... More
