Put this on your do not miss list, along with most of the West End, inclusive of the rain forest. Lots of power toys for rent in the smoothest water on the island.

I really don't understand all the great reviews of this beach. It's a rather small beach and can get very crowded. We decided to spend the day there because of the great reviews and the availability of water sports. The water is very calm here...More

Great beach with lots to do and watch. All the water sports are here. beach volleyball is here. Lots of tourists and locals especially on Sundays when they have live music. This beach is next to the coolest bar on the island.

This beach is located about a mile north of Fredricksted. We did not have much luck snorkeling here but it was great place for a swim. The beach is clean, slow slopping, very relaxing

We spent a few hours here after visiting Frederiksted and really enjoyed he beach. The backstop vegetation makes it seem secluded. We also enjoyed appetizers and drinks at the beach bar.

So much to do on this beach. Jet ski, dive, snorkel, etc. Plus, you can eat and drink here too or picnic. Watch the sun go down. Loved this beach as I felt safe with other people around, but not over crowded at all.
