There are two main beaches in Frigate Bay. One which faces the Atlantic shore and the other the Caribbean, allowing guests staying in the area to experience the best of both worlds. Sea grapes and coconut palms line the shores, but so do restaurants and bars, because this is a very popular destination –especially when there is a cruise ship in port.
There are a large number of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of the beaches, for those who enjoy this relaxing pastime. Just click on specific names for a detailed guide to that particular location.
Half Moon Bay: The coast is covered in a distinctively dark, almost black sand; and like the nearby appropriately named Muddy Point, walking can sometimes be difficult on the sludgy surface. The winding coastline and nearby hillsides make for pleasant scenery, though, and the atmosphere is very relaxed.
Another alternative worth considering is South Friar's Bay. Friar's Bay is divided into two beaches, one on the Atlantic, and one on the Caribbean. Both feature fine sandy beaches.
Conaree Bay: Conaree Bay is a popular beach located on the Atlantic side of the island. The beach is a narrow strip of dark, mostly black, sand.
