Quiet Caribbean Beach with no Hotels on it

A great place to spend 7 hours with a Wadadli in one hand and a book in another. All the beauty of a Caribbean beach with fewer people on it. It's a local favorite.

Our excursion took us here for about an hour. The beach is very nice with gentle slope into the water - was good for me as I'm not a strong swimmer. A shower and changing station is across the road for a fee (included with our excursion). Non swimmers had several tables and benches under the trees next to the... More

This is a small nice beach not far from Nelson's Dockyard. Catherine's Cafe Plage is at one end with its great dining and the rest of the beach is pretty much empty. Nice gentle waves when we were there. Plenty of easy parking. You may want to bring your own snacks/drinks. It does get used by some cruiseships however for... More

Perfect beach for the family, friends or solo! You have the fancy Catherine's Restaurant at one end and the easy and quick Bumpkins at the other! Fab day out at the beach!

Lovely sand, great for kids, and the restaurant on the end is great. Try the jugs of Rum Punch... The food isn't bad either...

Had many happy afternoons on this beach which is now a bit restricted by the Catherine's Place restaurant development at the west end. Its still OK until the Cruise Ships arrive and loudly and rudely crowd out the 'real' tourists.

This is a nice beach . They have covered tables/huts so you can get out of the sun or rain depending on the weather. There are changing facilities and ample parking at this beach as well. It rained the day we went there so having some place to be under cover for a while was nice.

This seems like a good Beach for families with children as there are life guards. Some shade provided by sea grape trees too. It is also easy to walk to from English Harbor town.

We enjoyed our visit to the beach even though it was a bit of a walk to get there from our apartment. Directions made it easy to find. Upon arriving, we found that there were some great beach loungers for rent - $5 US per hour. A bit steep, but worth the price for a couple of hours of comfort.... More

Pigeon beach arrived by boat, so not the most easy place to tie up to as the jetty are reserved for dive boat, so not the easiest of place to arrive and tie up. Black Disney beach, very French in its nature, so only euros no dollars accepted that made it difficult coming from APEC and USA dollar resorts.
