We walked a short distance to this peaceful beach from our apartment. There was one small group there with us. No one else except for a rasta fisherman further away down the beach. Security patrol this area and there were very few vendors around to...More

At Saunders Beach you can swim with the fish. The water is crystal clear so that you can always see the sand. You don't have to worry about sharks or such. Also, there are always beach vendors willing to provide/sell snacks, etc.

Not bad, but I prefer Montagu Beach east of Downtown. Saunders Beach had siltier sand, almost like dust, and there was occasional garbage around, like a few old truck tires. Montagu Beach had better sand, and was clean; in fact, I saw a worker cleaning...More

If you're on a cruise, walk down to where buses are (ask someone - they will point you in the right direction), and look for a bus with a #10 on it. Ask for Saunders Beach. We paid $1.25 per person. They drop you off...More
