Great beach, first day there we were pretty much by ourselves. On the days the cruise ships come in it gets super crowded so probably best to head up to Darkwood. The Nest bar and restaurant is good enough, varying degrees of friendliness.

I have no idea how this beach can possibly get 1 and 2 star reviews from anyone that doesn't have a negative agenda. First off, please do your research before going. My wife and I were amazed at all the people we could hear complaining of the small sea shell bed before getting into the water, or the slight drop... More

Stopped here on the way back from an island tour. Beautiful stretch of long quiet beach. Definitely worth a view and just around the corner from Jolly Beach

We stopped at Valley Church Beach on an island tour and were amazed with the colour and clearness of the water. The vista is spectacular and sand so white.

The colour of the Caribbean Sea with the higher elevations in the background are stunning. It gives me sense of what it must be like in the South Pacific.

On a cruise, took a cab to Valley church beach. 8 dollars pp each way. 5 dollars for a chair. Had my own beach umbrella ( which was stolen, when I went to bathroom to change). Beach was nice, very swimmable, views were great. One bar, beers slightly higher priced than other Islands beaches. All in all pretty good beach

My wife and I visited Valley Church beach recently were very impressed. We have been to Sandhaven and Dickinson Bay previously but our taxi driver recommended this one. Super beach, sunbeds, umbrellas, bars and toilets. What more could you ask for? The sea is clean, clear and a typical shade of emerald. Wish I was still there!

Nice beach but way to crowded Looked more like a beach in the United States during a busy summer holiday Constantly bothered to rent jet skies by locals There are quiter beaches and less crowded ones than Valley Church
