Crash Boat Beach is the closest choice to consider near the hotel. Because you can find this beach three quarters of a mile from the hotel, your party won't have to journey far to enjoy the sun and surf. The site of a former military port that was used as a jumping off point for rescuing air crews, Crash Boat Beach was aptly named for this history. Some of the pier infrastructure remains from this time, though those who aren't aware of the history call it an eyesore.

If instead you're interested in a more secluded spot of sand, The Shacks could be a better choice for you. Not far from some major tourist areas, The Shacks has been able to keep a low profile despite its very large beach and relatively easy access. Being located right where the Atlantic Ocean turns into the Caribbean Sea, this beach has a nice hybrid of clear Caribbean Waters and rough Atlantic Waves. It can be found two miles north of these accommodations.
