Staying just a street away meant we could walk to this beach. As are most of the beaches on the Atlantic side- they aren't necessarily meant for swimming. But they are definitely great for sunning, reading, napping, and drinking from a freshly cut coconut by...More

An adventure into some great history!You may need to ask a local so stop by Cutters and get the scoop on the Harri Smith Beach!

I walked down the shaded stairs to the beach, stepped onto the sand, and felt unprepared for the beauty before me. The cliffs on either side formed a cove, the palm trees seemed as high as the sky, the water was the most magnificent shade...More

Bottom Bay was relatively easy to get to, but only had one other couple when we were there. The waves are a bit harsher so we didn't swim, but the water and sand are beautiful. It is a great place to take some pictures, have...More

We made a point of seeking out this little bay, as it is attractive. You first run the gauntlet of the guys at the top of the staircase selling rum punch etc, there's also a couple of others at the bottom too. We didn't feel...More

Breath taking views and amazing beach. Big waves but, worth a visit. Access by stairs so if you have some mobility issues may be a challenge.

Beautiful beach on the south east coast. Not commercialised.Just a make shift "bar" run by local guys in the car park! . Not suitable for swimming but great for photos and relaxing. Access is by steep steps so not ideal for disabled folks

A lovely idealistic beach to be found on the east coast.Not really a place to swim but we thought that it was beautiful and not crowded and there were no sunbeds laid out.Heaven.

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

Yes there is a bus that drops you off on the main road, however it's about a 10 minute walk to the beach. As someone mentioned before it's about a ten minute drive from Crane Beach to Bottom Bay. Hope this helps!
