This is one of the most unspoilt and picturesque beaches I have ever visited. Windward side of Bequia so some seaweed on rougher days but no worries. Please may it stay this way!

Looks like all the photographs you have ever seen of a Caribbean beach. Easy walk from one end to the other on the fine sand, Palm fringed with several small houses etc hidden back from the beach.

Being on the Atlantic side of the island, we were warned about the waves and undertow but we ventured into the water anyway. It was well worth it! The water is really nice and the waves will certainly knock you over if you're not paying...More

This beach is more rough and rocky than Lower Bay which is on the caribbean side. Still a nice beach, but will want to use your swim shoes.

Generally has waves breaking close to beach on south end of bay, north end has fewer waves. once past the waves its calm. sugarapple beachfront cottage is good location on calmer end.
