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.
