Spent a great day here. Very private, no vendors. Gorgeous views that started on the drive from the ship. Free Wifi (worked better inside), food and drinks were a little pricey.

Our taxi driver drove us here for a view on our way back from the far end of South Friar’s Beach. We only stayed a few minutes, but we were smitten. The property is quiet stunning to see. Very beautiful. I understand that groups come from the cruise ships for the day. I might want to avoid that if I... More

Our family spent a day at the beach at Carambola and had a wonderful time followed by a spectacular lunch. We had beach chairs and umbrellas reserved and rented for a nominal fee, and were very happy with our proximity to the water. Our kids loved playing in the ocean well within our sight. Lots of staff were on hand... More

The beach has soft sand. The entry into the ocean is perfect. The waters are warm. The bartenders are friendly and dispense buckets of local beer for a reasonable price. We snorkeled in the bay and saw a reasonable amount of fish by the pier... The went snorkeled out of the bay and around the corner to the right... WOW!!!... More

Only used the beach and restroom. Very nice facility. Country club experience and beach atmosphere. You can get it all here. Lots of cushioned beach chairs and shade structures. Normally $10 USD per chair rental and $5 if no ships are in. Snorkel here around reef (rocks) by dock. Lots of fish and a few shells. Drive in on hard... More

The staff are excellent, and the prices are reasonable for beach chairs/umbrellas. The facilities will service most of your needs- WiFi access, good bar at reasonable prices, restaurant, shower/changing facilities, and ready access back to the port. I highly recommend this place.

Thank Bowulf
