Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will find several beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, if some of the people in your group are so inclined. Simply click on specific names for more detail concerning that particular location.

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.

A second option worth considering is Rendezvous Bay. Rendezvous Bay's white sand beach is set against a beautiful backdrop of lush greenery and crystal clear bay waters. It's a beautiful, quiet spot.

Galleon Beach: This beach is inland on the coast of Deep Bay. The water has a lot of boat traffic and the beach has some boat docks as well.
