Beaches in Dickenson Bay

On an island known for having a different beach for every day of the year, noting that one beach is the best is really saying something.  Dickinson Bay is one section of beachfront property that is considered to be, if not one of the best, in the running for top three. The great thing about it is that it is easily accessible and has a little something for every type of beachgoer.  The downside is that the beaches here are always very busy, but if you travel just north you'll find a few stretches of sand that are slightly more secluded. 

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find a large selection of beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of the beaches, if some of the people in your group are so inclined.

Runaway Beach

Soldier Bay West: Soldier Bay West is an isolated beach, hiding itself between big name beach resorts and waiting to be discovered by the island's more curious visitors.

A second place to consider is Soldier Bay East. Boasting calm bay waters and incredibly soft soft sand, this is a typical beautiful Caribbean beach. There are soft ocean beds for swimming and wading and some good snorkeling on the west side of the beach.

Fort James Beach: Fort James Beach has wonderfully white sand and transparent waters. It has a few great nearby restaurants, but it's not overly developed.

Look through this table for information concerning beaches that can be found in and around the area.
