My favorite beach on the island so far. Showers, changing rooms, restrooms available. During the season there is food too. Plenty of parking and wide area to explore. Can be rough tho in the surf.

Big wide beach with ample parking and restrooms. A beautiful and clean place to sit and enjoy the sand and sea. You can walk endlessly in either direction or just dig your toes in the sand.

Shack on the beach with picnic tables. Good lemonade but pricey. Crab sandwich was really really good.

Husband and I like to walk on beach and this one was great! Not as many seashells,seaweed or stones like the north side of island. One of our favorites.

Wow. What a nice sandy beach. Beside from the turquoise water, you can easily mistaken this for the Caribbean water. Beach has a great snack restaurant. High waves so be careful but otherwise clean and plenty of fun! Bus drop off, which is a ++

No. And this is an isolated section of the island as far as stores and restaurants go.
