Cemetery Beach is the one that's nearest to this property. The waters are calm for swimming and wading and this beach is usually active, populated by guests of nearby accommodations. Most of the beach has resorts and villas on the inland edge, not native flora, so the beach offers little shade.

If you're searching for a less raucous beach scene, Barkers National Park Beach might be a good choice. The shoreline on this long, clean beach is bordered by mangroves and greenery. During the week, there are very few visitors so if you like isolated beach experiences, this is the spot for you. It's situated only a quick taxi cab trip away.
