Enjoyed our day here, a beautiful view and uncrowded - especially as you walk to the west away from the access path. No facilities of any kind, and the sand is somewhat difficult to walk on. The day we were there there was enough of...More

We were staying at the Shoys so we were able to walk to the beach. If you are a good swimmer you could swim to some decent snorkeling. Nothing like Buck Island though. What is nice is that it is secluded and quiet. If you...More

Very nice. Not a zillion empty beach chairs to clutter this view. Water is calm. Bushes give shade........

Turn into the Buccaneer, the hardest part is finding the beach. Walk through the beautiful mangroves to get to, nice beach to walk and to sunbathe, not crowded when we went.

Shoy Beach is a hidden treasure nestled at the back of a private neighborhood. You turn in at the Buccaneer Hotel and take that road back until it splits. You'll see a little booth to the right where the worker there will take your name...More

This beach is like something out of a movie. Beautiful crescent beach with gentle surf. Good snorkeling along the reef at the east end. There's plenty of shade and free parking. It's a bit of a hike, but well worth the drive and the walk!...More

Went to this beach because of disappointment in the snorkeling at Buccaneer. Still disappointed here as well, as the entry is very gradually sloping, and very difficult not to end up touching coral or getting stuck by a sea urchin. Go a little farther to...More
