Great beaxh to hang out. Make sure to make a reservation prior to going if you want to do any water sports though.... slim pickings if you don’t. Very nice people, Reggae Bar has good food and good drinks. Laid back and enjoyable....

Lovely peaceful beach. There are several bars along the beach but on the days we went none were open . Gentle slopping sandy beach . Probably the best beach on the Island
