The waters that wash ashore the beaches of Jolly Harbour come from the Caribbean Sea, which means they tend to be calm and warm -- just the type of environment families and leisurely swimmers look for in a beach. Add to that the fact that most of the sands along the shores are powder soft and smooth, and you'll find some of the most desireable beaches on the west coast located here.
You'll discover several beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Just click on the name of each beach for a detailed article concerning that particular stretch of sand.
Cove Bay Beach: Backed by a line of trees, Cove Bay Beach is secluded from the road and from all save the people on the beach.
A second place to consider is Ffryes Beach. This is a great swimming beach because the ocean floor is so clear, matching the empty white softness of the shore. There is little shade to be found here, so bring your sunblock.
Hermitage Bay: Undisturbed and not easily accessible, Hermitage Bay boasts a quiet atmosphere and an arc of perfectly white sand. The primary visitors to the Beach are guests of the Hermitage Bay resort, though the beach is still open to the public.
