This beautiful, small bay has an outstanding sand beach. This is the place to walk barefoot, either in the sand or in the small waves. Where to walk? Who cares, you're on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Although the Club is closed (as of early 2017) there's a bar at the west end of the beach. And... More

We stopped here while on Island Windjammers tall ship the Diamant. We anchored at the base of the main port and walked up the hill to see the view from the back of the church. Then down the hill to this perfect beach. Beautiful blue water, nice sandy beach with palm trees for shade. A few local shacks for food... More

This is a big French yatchie destination and the bay is filled with boats. The swimming is very good with some so so snorkeling at one end of the beach. The locals will grill lobster for you in stalls along the water. It is delicious and it's fun to hang out and chat with the people who live in Mayreau.... More

We anchored here overnight with our catamaran. Beautiful bay, calm waters and lovely view over the land to the other side of the island. Very nice swimming also, but not much in terms of snorkeling. Lovely beach to sit on and walk down. There are vendors on the south end of the beach. Lovely spot to anchor overnight.

Breathtakingly beautiful, in the low season the beach facilities are closed but the beach is still worth the visit

Forgot to say, when you do the Tobago Cays trip, you also go to Salt Whistle Bay. Amazing! No snorkeling, but you can walk 30 feet out in the bay in the remarkably clear water and still only be neck deep. So beautiful...

The natural beauty of this picturesque beach and bay was spoilt by the high commercialisation that seems to have mushroomed here. Nevertheless natural beauty still trumps man made activities.
