Very beautiful area protected from the wind, there is a little jetty if you come by boat, white sandy beach and clear turquoise calm water. Normally there are local ladies selling souvenirs and there is a bar as well.

A delightful time is yours to enjoy on Mayreau. Picnic on a sandy beach, swim in calm transparent waters, and replay a scene you will happily enjoy in your mind for years to come. All this came after a catamaran trip to Mopion, the smallest island in the world with a man-made structure on it (a tree trunk with a... More

This beautiful, small bay has an outstanding sand beach. This is the place to walk barefoot, either in the sand or in the small waves. Where to walk? Who cares, you're on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Although the Club is closed (as of early 2017) there's a bar at the west end of the beach. And... More

We stopped here while on Island Windjammers tall ship the Diamant. We anchored at the base of the main port and walked up the hill to see the view from the back of the church. Then down the hill to this perfect beach. Beautiful blue water, nice sandy beach with palm trees for shade. A few local shacks for food... More

This is a big French yatchie destination and the bay is filled with boats. The swimming is very good with some so so snorkeling at one end of the beach. The locals will grill lobster for you in stalls along the water. It is delicious and it's fun to hang out and chat with the people who live in Mayreau.... More
