I'm mildly sheepish posting this because everyone I encountered at Malcolm Beach gave me the "SSSHHHHH!" with their finger up to their mouth when I mentioned that the place seemed "secret". A guest at our resort (NWP) mentioned this place to my son and I and we went on a surveillance mission to see what it was all about. We... More

This place is way too accessible still, in spite of poor road. Thank goodness it's still not popular but totally underprotected. People walking away with sea items.

It was a crazy road to get here, but it was SO worth it!! I love this beach - it is definitely my favorite of all the beaches we went to. Little fishies came swimming right up to us - it was so amazing! Be careful traveling to this beach - but definitely GO!

We made the drive in a Kia Picanto. It took about 15 minutes of fancy driving to get there with the car in one piece. But once we arrived, we loved the seclusion, crystal clear water, and great beach.

This is a beautiful place but the beach has gone! The sand totally eroded the beach, you have to walk half a mile to the north where it is piled up. No problem for a day trip but the poor people at Amanyara Resort don't seem to have a beach either. Tough when you are paying 000s a night. The... More

Malcolm's Road Beach was worth the trip. There was good snorkeling, and we had the beach more or less to ourselves. The road was very passable, we just had to take it slow.

This was actually my favorite beach on the Island. Not as striking as Grace Bay, yet its seclusion makes for what it lacks on the "picture perfect" rating. Do not get me wrong, this is a beautiful turquoise beach. What is fun about it is the trek to get here. At one point your start to wonder whether the 1990's... More

My wife and I love to explore, so we headed out to Malcolm's beach as we knew this was where the dive boats took everyone to do the wall dives and I thought maybe I could snorkel off the beach to see some of the same. The local maps are good on getting you to the area, but the roads... More

The beach off of Malcolm's Road is about as far away as you can get from Grace Bay but well worth the ~30 minute drive. We drove there in our tiny economy rental car and despite the road being fairly bumpy/rocky in places we managed it just fine. The beach itself has nice sand. There are a lot of rocks... More

Malcolm's Beach is advertised as being a long ride down rough roads, but this just is not true. Its an easy drive down a well maintained dirt road just a few minutes from the airport. You're rewarded with near isolation and some great snorkling. There is a small hut to keep the sun off your head and several reefs in... More
