Gorgeous views and blue clear water. You can rent paddle boats and go wind surfing. There are No beach chairs to rent so bring your own. Also No restaurants.

Rented some stand up paddle boards at the beach. The rental process is clunky but the guys giving out the boards and lessons were nice. I would recommend getting there early to get a parking spot.

The most shade of any of the beach we visited was this one. The water had a bit more current to it, but not bad. This beach was OK for snorkeling, but not really much to see. There are many things you can rent to...More

This is a beautiful beach. We were here on a day that no cruise ships were in port so it wasn't crowded at all. The water is beautiful, clear and warm. They also have decent washrooms with showers.

It's a bit of a hike to the beach, not as long as the walk to Honeymoon though. Beautiful beach with lots of room so you're not on top of others on the beach. Not much shade on the beach. Beautiful, shallow, and relaxing.

Always a great time at this beach, having a snack bar and local trails to explore. Near to town and right on the north shore road.

We were vacationing there last spring and summer. We met some friends and it is a real struggle for them because they survive and count on the tourism. We love that place and hope to be back soon!,
