Shoal bay is one of the best beaches I've ever seen. Crystal clear water. Great for snorkeling too. It wasn't crowded at all. Rented umbrella and chairs from Tropical Sunset.

White powder sand, turquoise water, clean & calm water. It is not packed so it feels like you have your own private beach to yourself. Literally one of the best beaches I've ever been to.

This must be our 6th visit - so far for me it's the best beach ever - water clear and sparkling shades of blue and the beach soft sand. Getting a little bit built up now - hopefully it will retain its wild character.

It doesn't get better than this if you're looking for a no frills, pristine beach. We love it here especially at Gwen's Reggae bar on Sundays when they have live music during the afternoon. Bring a towel and suntan lotion, relax and grab some rum...More

It depends on what you like... Personnaly we like quiet beaches such as in Turks and Shoal Bay is close but already too built on the western side... But if the sun is shining, the colors are beautiful!!! Enjoy!!!
