This is a nice beach with calm water as long as the cruise ships are not in (too crowded and nasty trash left). Good bars and restaurant on the beach as well.

One of the most pristine beaches in the island and hands down my favorite. The ocean is particularly beautiful and warm. The sand is fine and silky. The usual vendors offering massages on the beach, braiding your hair and a small hut sells drinks and...More

Could you share with me how to book Adonis taxi. We would like to reserve his taxi service for Cockleshell Beach. Did you have any problem renting a chair or umbrella.
