The beaches in the Falmouth Harbour area are known for their calm nature that are great for swimmers of all skill levels.  Couple that with their location near the cruise port terminal, and you'll find that these are some of the most crowded beaches on the island. 

Which Beaches Are Available?

You'll discover an abundance of beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at several locations, for visitors who enjoy the underwater scene. Click on each beach name to get additional information concerning that beach.

Windward Beach: Secluded, open, and rarely crowded, Windward Beach makes up for it rocky waters with beautiful views and plenty of sand to sun bathe on. With the shimmering ocean on one side and a wall of trees on the other, eco-tourist and all lovers of natural beaches should be pleased with this one.

Another location worth considering is Rendezvous Bay. Access to Rendezvous Bay is not simple. There is a footpath there, not a road and it requires a thirty to forty minute hike to access.

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.
