West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

This is a good tropical beach. Clean, good sand, great water. Lots of hotels and restaurants lining it and lots of people. We were there in January, so lots of holiday business. If you want a quiet secluded beach, this isn't it. But if you like activity, good sand and water, plenty of attractions,, this is your place. The beach... More

Absolutely stunning views. Great food and lots to do. Best breakfast is Celeste's. Argentinian grill is definitely the best dinner but it's a bit more pricy than other restaurants. Manuel is a great taxi boat driver and has a sweet teal boat.

The beach is beautiful!!! It can be crowded on days that cruise ships arrive, but we ventured further to the ends of the beach on those days and saw fewer crowds. The restaurants and bars along the way have fantastic food and drinks and many have chairs for patrons or for rent.

During our 3 week stay at West End we traveled by water taxi ($3 per person each way) to West Bay Beach. It's an easy and pleasant boat ride. Once we arrived we chose to walk the entire beach to the end (about a kilometer?). A lovely and easy beach to walk on that has a firm and flat surface.... More

This place can get crowded when there are several cruise ships in port at once but the water is clean and nice and if you go to the Fosters end, not as crowded. Be prepared to pay $10pp for the use of beach chairs, showers and bathrooms as well as security so you aren't afraid to go into the water... More

We taxied there from the cruise ship and paid 15 apiece. Thought that was fair because it is about a 15 mile ride. We went to Henry Morgans and paid 10 for a beach chair also fair. They have chairs in the sun or shade. They also have a very attentive security guard to watch your stuff. We took one... More

The West Bay beach is beautiful no doubt. However, if your accomodation is not on the West Bay beach, be prepared to pay a pretty penny. A water taxi from the West End costs $3US per person for one way. The water taxi ride is a nice little ride. Once you get to West Bay, you will notice it is... More

I really enjoyed this beach. The water is super clear and there are a bunch of people selling knick knacks and things like that. We went snorkeling and it was very beautiful, the problem was that the goggles they gave us made everything extremely foggy. Other than that the water was really nice and there are a bunch of tours... More
