Although the goings-on of Somerset Village seem to center around Mangrove Bay, it is for the port that hosts fishing and sailboats moreso than for use as a beach. The beaches for swimming, which are towards the west side of town, are small and quiet.
You will discover an abundance of beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. For more information concerning one particular beach just click on the names of the ones you'd like to know more about.
Mangrove Bay: The bay is tucked away in the northwest of the island and is surrounded by tropical vegetation, particularly mangroves and palm trees. White, soft sand makes for comfortable walking, while shallow waters are perfect for snorkelers and swimmers of all ages.
A second alternative worth considering is Black Bay. Black Bay is close to the main road and is easily accessible by bus, foot, and car. Buses #7 and #8 pass the area.
Whitney Bay: Whitney Bay's beach is tucked away beneath a hill on the southwestern end of the island and its landscape is dotted with palm trees and dramatic rocks. The bay's water is shallow and calm, making for ideal swimming.
