Completely picturesque and stunning and a place to go either as a couple, family or indeed a group. Be aware it’s difficult under foot so the steps and pathways are tough. There are sun beds to be had at a price and sellers trading their...More

This is more of a locals beach. We first found it last year after visiting Crane Beach. It’s more on the Atlantic side so it’s not advisable to go swimming but if your looking for a long stretch of beach with no one else in...More

We visited mid September and we were the only people on the beach. Little sign if seaweed, or anything at all really. A lovely beach to spend sometime but too choppy for swimming. Parking at the top easy and just some steps down, may be...More

We had a great time at Bottom Bay! Sam made us fresh drinks out of coconuts that he got from the tree himself. He showed us down to the beautiful beach and cave. He took our picture, too!

Beautiful beach that was almost deserted when I visited - only 1 other family there. Not a beach for swimming due to being on the east coast. Totally instagram worthy which is where I found it. Worth a trip. Steep steps to access

Visited yesterday. Such a beautiful spot. Sad about the seaweed and lots of sand flies here. Glad we went, stunning place. Would have loved to have spent some time walking the shore but sadly not to be.

Lovely photogenic beach. A nice beach to spend a few hours in peace away from the vendors of the east coast beaches. There is a friendly coconut drink seller at the car park but thats all you’ll find here, so bring your own food and...More

The road is kind of off-road and really rough yet you drive literally through residential areas until you make it to a small parking "lot" on the rocks/dirt (can't miss it). I don't recall the signs, we used the google maps... More

i would look into Sapphire Beach condos. We just stayed there and we know the owners of a few condos. Very safe, Guards on duty, gated. Nice restaurants very close. Feel free to ask me for more details.

Its a bit in the middle of nowhere so you need a car and there are no bars or restaurants near by. Being on the beach alone, although seemed safe, may be a little daunting for a lady alone, but the locals and beach sellers... More
