Nice, quiet beach in good sand and swimming opportunities. Not too large, but not too busy. Can hear some road noise.

This small beach is conveniently located near several hotels and restaurants (De Clay Oven, The Cliff Beach Club). The local fish market is also nearby and a great stop after the beach for FRESH fish to cook.

The beach at Paynes Bay is both beautiful and serene. With calm crystal clear waters of the west coast meeting its soft golden sand. It's a nice quiet beach perfect for relaxation.
