Rodney Bay is probably the most convenient option to visit near the hotel. Keep in mind that this beach is a moderate distance off, so you won't have to journey far to find a place to sit by the water. The beach, although a main attraction, can easily become overrun with tourists, but the area is also host to other activities like bars, restaurants, and shops for a good time. You'll also find a wide range of water sports at this busy destination.
If instead you're interested in a place where surfers and sunbathers can find solitude, Donkey Beach might be a good choice. One of the smallest, but most picturesque beaches on the island's northwest coast, Donkey Beach was almost destroyed when a golf course was to be put in there, but as of now the course's plans have fallen through and the beach remains. You can find it located only a short distance away.
Stopping over at a town or community close to your hotel can act as a nice day trip, whether it's about trying their underrated nightlife, or simply experiencing some of the local culture while on your trip. Bay Gardens Hotel is located in Gros Islet, outside the center of Rodney Bay.
