This is one of the most unspoilt and picturesque beaches I have ever visited. Windward side of Bequia so some seaweed on rougher days but no worries. Please may it stay this way!

Our hotel was on the beach. Quite big waves so not calmest beach on the island but safe and good for swimming. Water crystal clear and warm. Didn't find any good snorkelling here but didn't look very hard! Normally only us on the beach and...More

Looks like all the photographs you have ever seen of a Caribbean beach. Easy walk from one end to the other on the fine sand, Palm fringed with several small houses etc hidden back from the beach.

A beautiful bay with reasonable snorkelling. Most is private but at either end there is room for the general public. I would guess that the hotels (2 in number) would not mind if your prescience if you patronised them.

This beach is more rough and rocky than Lower Bay which is on the caribbean side. Still a nice beach, but will want to use your swim shoes.

This is a very beautiful and quiet beach. It has a fantastic resort (Bequia Beach Resort) located right on the beach. The water is nice, however there is some seaweed similar to blades of grass that float on top of the water.
