Travellers talk about
“be careful”(7 reviews)
“au naturel”(3 reviews)
If you're looking for a beach that's quiet but not totally secluded, Cupecoy is a good choice. Its white sands are backed by low sandstone cliffs that have been eroded in such a way that they provide a run of small semiprivate coves.

This beach is one of the coolest beaches I've ever been to. With cliffs and shaded caves lining the shore, be sure to get up early and claim a cave with a good swimming spot. You can relax and be free here. Although on the...More

Cupecoy is one of my favorite beaches on SXM, because: - it is a smaller beach than most, so it is a smaller crowd, which means more enjoyable; - it is on the Carribean Sea (as opposed to the Atlantic Ocean), so... More
