This beach is WAY off the beaten path. It's about 45 minutes from Cruz Bay and approximately half that time is spent on a VERY bumpy dirt trail road. If you want to get to this beach, you'll definitely need to rent a Jeep! It's...More

You definitely need a 4 wheel drive jeep to get there but it's worth it. There are never any crowds due to the remote location, the bugs are not bothersome and it's got all you need for a day at the beach

This bay is in the National Park, and there are no facilities, bars, or other distractions. The water is warm and clear, the coral is great and it is uncrowded. The crew was reluctant to leave. Other than snorkeling and swimming, there is not much...More

this beach is a little off the beaten path and requires a little off roading to get here as the main roads do not go this far. Be careful which rental company you rent from because most of them do not allow off roading. We...More
