A beautiful swimming beach. Just don't touch or eat the Manchaneel fruits on the beach. Have a bite or drink at La Plage or Keegan's after

Couldn’t believe how quiet this beach is. Hardly a sole on it. Snorkelling was best at the top end closest to Princess Margaret beach. Saw lion fish, small Moray eels, small barracuda and loads more fish. Also found lots of sand dollars and urchins. Wish...More

As per the norm, Lower bay is by far one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. I would recommend Keegans for a drink a bite to eat if you're passing through Lower Bay anytime soon. I had a lobster salad and it was...More

There is often one at Plantation. It might be for rent or perhaps for their guests
