Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will discover an abundance of beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for vacationers who are so inclined. Click on the beach names for a detailed article concerning that particular location.

Windward Beach: At the southern end of Dockyard Drive, you can turn westward along dirt roads. Taking these dirt roads to the southwest will lead you right to the beach.

A second option for beach-goers to consider is Rendezvous Bay. If you like to feel secluded on your beach trip, it might be worth it for you to find your way to Rendezvous Bay. You're not likely to find a crowd here, because it's off the beaten path.

Galleon Beach: Galleon Beach is on Deep Bay, which is home to several marinas, so it's usually heavily populated by boats. It also has a good number of close by accommodations, several which surround the beach itself.

Glance through the table just below for more information about beaches available in and around the area.
