This beach is WAY off the beaten path. It's about 45 minutes from Cruz Bay and approximately half that time is spent on a VERY bumpy dirt trail road. If you want to get to this beach, you'll definitely need to rent a Jeep! It's...More

This is a great spot to visit with young kids. There are plenty of sandy areas and very small waves. You definitely need 4wd to get there. The road is quite rocky but it is worth the trip. Little Lameshure does not have good snorkeling...More

You definitely need a 4 wheel drive jeep to get there but it's worth it. There are never any crowds due to the remote location, the bugs are not bothersome and it's got all you need for a day at the beach
