We walked down to Frenchman's Cove with no real expectations and we were blown away. There was an entry fee of $10/traveler but you could come and go as you please. For an additional fee, you could rent a chair on the beach. The beach...More

$21 per person fee; worth it. Toilets, showers and lockers are provided. There is a snack bar with drink service. The villas also look interesting.
