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 that beach-goers can 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.
