Each beach in Saint Lawrence Gap has something different to offer guests, which is why it is recommended that you stop by a different one for each day of our stay.  To the east the beaches seem to be especially quiet, and St. Lawrence Bay all the way to the west is known for its shallow tide which allows visitors to walk out quite a good distance before the water begins to deepen.  In between the two far points of the town are the beaches lined with restaurants and hotels, so they can be busy, but they great for watersports.  

Pick Your Ideal Beach

There are a handful of beaches to consider in the area. You can click on the name of each beach for a detailed review of that particular stretch of sand.

Welches Beach

Oistins Beach: Part of the parish of Christ Church, the beach typically hosts fishermen and fishing boats. Light vegetation allows for shade and calm turquoise waters permit swimming.

A second place worth considering is Maxwell Beach. A few hotels back the beach, and vendors selling crafts and food line the shore to take advantage of the crowd. Benches speckle the golden hued sand.

Dover Beach: Dover Beach is a wide beach located in the St. Lawrence Gap that offers guests calm turquoise waters and immaculate white sand. Surrounded by tropical foliage and a short distance from bars, restaurants, and hotels, the beach is one of the most active on the island.
