Visited Pigeon Beach on Sunday. Quite a lot of locals enjoying beer and rum and just liming but it was quiet enough to find a spot. Plenty of trees at the edge of the sand so some shade. Water was clear and calm and didn't shelve too much so safer for small children. Nice to watch the yachts come and... More

Eat at Catherine's Cafe Plage on this beach. It's pricey but the quality, service and food will not disappoint

Great beach with shade and a fantastic restaurant and bar - Catherines Cafe at one end. Short walk from The Marina Yacht Club.

Loved the clear calm water. The bathroom facilities were closed. The staff at the snack bar were very unfriendly. Walk with your cooler of drinks and food.

Used by local as it is their beach, so having only used private beaches, we felt quite uncomfortable, no where to purchase cold drinks or sunbeds, as you can only access the beach by car. Long Bay is much prettier.

Want a local beach then Pigeon is it. Quiet and out the way clean and friendly place. There is food to be had there if you wish to buy it. More for adults as quite deep. But worth a visit.

We swam in the ocean for hours and afterwards, got a great chicken roti from a lady selling them on the beach. It was... More

We visited a couple of times during our stay. Lovely quite clean beach. A local person told us after we'd been they thought it was the best beach on the island. We loved it and swam a couple of times
