The unpaved road in to Smuggler's Cove is daunting & keeps many people out. Some prefer to walk, but it's not a short walk. Once there, you'll see crystal clear, mostly flat water & a small beach with lots of palm trees for shade...perfect for...More

Smuggler's Cove is a small but beautiful sandy beach about a half mile down a dirt road. There was a hand-lettered sign on the main road giving directions to the beach, but even with that we missed the turn and had to double back. My...More

If you want a real adventure approach Smuggler's Cove from the southwest. After we reached the end of the main road we were directed up a rocky ledge. Although the route brought us to the beach, it's a miracle our tiny Suzuki made it without...More

We stayed about 100 meters from smugglers cove. Nice sandy beach with decent snorkeling. Saw some big lobsters but no turtles. Great beach entry with lots of shade to relax. Water was great.

Super soft sand. Smooth entry. A fella at the end of the beach has a cool little bar and "grill" and all kinds of info on the best beaches on island!

Don't know if you got an answer on this or not. In terms of distance, it's not that far from the cruise port. In terms of the road conditions and logistics, I would allow 45 minutes to and from. RICH
