A perfect spot to enjoy seven mile beach without the resort crowds and there's a parking area right on the beach. Conveniently cross the road to Governor's plaza for a bite to eat.

This beach is further up Seven Mile, and it's public as in with parking there for you. It's becoming more popular with tourists so not such a getaway for locals except on a Sunday. There is a portapotty there but no permanent facilities. They have...More

This beach can be found as one of the beach stops on Seven Mile Beach in the hotel area. It's on the left side as you are heading toward West End. There are signs on the road for it. There is a nice parking lot...More
