Description:

West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination:...

West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

ONE OF KIND SUNSET

Plenty of resorts to choose from. Enjoy beach chairs with local cocktails and be prepared for one of the best sunsets ever. A little bit crowded by boats and noisy music

After spending a month on West Bay Beach, my wife and I have the following suggestions for visitors: * The white powder sand is the best on the island. Open-toe flip flops are best to minimize sand irritation. * Remember sun screen burns come easy here. * There are several professional dive, fishing and snorkeling shops on the beach. All... More

Beautiful beach ruined by locals. I hate even saying it, the economic condition in this country drives the locals to over do it. And that Stinks! The water is nice, the beach is nice. BUT when you have a line of locals so thick RIGHT in front of you, that you can't see the ocean or the beach. Well that... More

The pictures are deceiving, at least the day we were there off our cruise ship. Narrow, crowded beach. We were the only cruise ship in town, so cannot imagine what it would be like with several ships in town. Boats are allowed to anchor right at the beach (not at the dock), so not a nice, empty view as in... More

Wonderful place to spend an afternoon or a long vacation. Activities galore! If you want to spend away from the beach, visit the West Bay Mall; area hotels; restaurants; bars and souvenir / tourism venues and other services.

We were fortunate enough to stay for a week on West Bay Beach, a gorgeous white sand beache with spectacular off the beach snorkeling and reef. We saw so many different kinds of reef fish and coral as well as a stingray, lobster and squid. West Bay Beach is by far better than West End and Half Moon Bay.

Thisis a good beach if you are into activities such as diving, snorkelling, para gliding, kayaking, etc. The beach is not very big and is crowded when there is a cruise boat in town. The reaf doesn't come to the beach so you have to take a dive boat out if you want to snorkel. Note that the beach is... More

We took a private boat from the beach to go snorkeling. The beach is beautiful but very crowded. The snorkeling was so-so.
