Don’t go if it has rained recently, unless u have a real 4x4. You need a vehicle with some clearance, unless you want a tow…don’t attempt in a mini rental.

Beach is deserted
If your not a strong swimmer- all u will see are the 100 or so reef balls with squirrel fish…not too exciting.
You need to swim out half mile, beyond the white reef balls to the reef. Clear water about 60’ vis - wait for the large fish from depths. saw reef shark, 4’ grouper, eagle rays and trigger fish.

Insane waves beautiful spot very secluded. Need a 4x4 to get there but definitely worth it. Beautiful beach and sunset.

We had a great time and I highly recommend but you have to know what you are in for and what you’ll find at the end. There are a lot of misleading reviews below
The beach is gorgeous - it’s low key and secluded. There is nothing there - bring your own “everything “ with you. You will likely be there alone
Next important fact - the road is bad and full of rocks and potholes- you won’t feel great in anything but a real four by four like a Jeep Wrangler. Anyone who tries this in a regular rental car is insane. There were many parts where ground clearance was a problem - with luck you can get by in a fake shopping mall “mommy-suv” but you will sweat
I want to be very clear on the next point - there is a good reason this is called Malcolm’s road beach and not Malcom road reef. There is close to zero to see on snorkeling. There are sunken giants balls to try encourage an artificial reef - it may get there in 50 years. You can see a few tiny fish - that’s it .
If you swim out to sea over 400 meters of sand getting to a depth of around 40 feet - you may see a ray or maybe a turtle
At around 500 meters from shore , you can get to the real reef but it’s 40 feet down, much better for diving plus you will be exhausted when you get there ( it’s a long long swim)
The bottom line is that this is a spectacular beach - we are happy that we went . It’s really not for snorkeling- stick to Smiths reef and the bight reef opposite coral gardens. The other great snorkeling is at leeward cut - you need to go out with boat - either with a snorkeling tour or private

Nearly deserted beach with an interesting artificial reef to snorkel around. We had a 4WD Jeep but the road was dry and we never needed 4WD - however, higher ground clearance was certainly helpful in a few spots when the rocks got bumpy. There is a small covered pavilion between the parking area and beach which is helpful to get out of the sun for a little while. There are NO other amenities - bring all your water, etc. If you like snorkeling or beachwalking but hate crowds then this is the place to be!

We had read some reviews of Malcolm’s beach and decided to make the effort to get out there from Grace Bay Beach. We didn’t have luck renting a Jeep, but did manage to rent a small Honda suv. After traveling from the main road, you will definitely be holding your breath riding on the rocky bleach colored sand blistered paths…very bumpy, isolated areas. Would NOT recommend driving in a standard car, the roads are very uneven with large holes, you can easily lose a tire and there isn’t anyone around to assist you. The road is very hilly , when you reach the cell towers continue to pass and push on until you see the beach pavilion straight ahead. The view is stunning and you will definitely feel it was all worth it. The Amanyara resort is down the beach, if you venture to the right of the pavilion it’s like paradise. There are some gaps between the reefs that you can swim between, the water is glorious ! Definitely pack some cold beverages, food and sunscreen , no bathrooms
…enjoy 🏝

Beautiful views. Crystal clear water. Great gazebo. We didn’t get a chance to snorkel which was disappointing. It was our fault because we simply went on a site seeing tour. But there were clearly great places to snorkel. I would highly recommend checking it out, although the road there is a rough you might want to be in a Jeep!!b

We went out snorkeling and missed the reef. We noticed on the way back that there is a map showing where the reef is inside the structure in the parking lot.

If you like solitude you may find it here. You need durable tires and a jeep or truck would be best. Long unpaved road to the beach. No frills, no thrills, no bathrooms. Just a deserted beach. Weather was not good when we went so we did not stay but even if it had been good not sure I would have stayed with the family. We experienced no problems but if you were ever gonna be robbed this could be the place. I felt uneasy enough that we moved on. Didn't want to leave the girls on the beach by themselves while we snorkeled. There are cameras there. However, if you had a problem, help would be a long time getting there.

We really enjoyed getting to this remote area and were alone on the beach. It is stunning and has a wonderful covered pavillion if you want to get out of the sun. While we had much better snorkeling in other parts of the island it is definitely worth the trip of you want privacy and beautiful views.

We followed the advice of previous reviewers and rented a Jeep just to get to this beach. Definitely glad we did as our other rental car wouldn't have made it!! It's a bit of a bumpy ride getting here but once you arrive, you're truly in paradise. We had the place to ourselves most of the day with just a couple people walking by from time to time. There is a resort at the far end. The beach is pristine with glorious water, sand, and coastline. No restaurants, no bars, and no restrooms that I could see - just FYI! We packed a cooler and stayed all day.
