Lovely. More quiet than Princess Margaret beach. Gorgeous too! De Reef is right there for food and drinks and you can rent chairs quite cheaply.

This beach was nice, a little rough at the shore with rocks and steep decline in the water. some cruise ship vacationers were ferried over here and got a little more crowded. Beautiful sand and shade and water.

We visited every beach on this tiny island during our week there. Luckily we were staying on the best beach already so we often came back home for a swim after each excursion! Keegan's, where we were staying, was in a perfect position to enjoy...More
