We came here by recommendation for the snorkelling - which was very good, but the best part of this beach was the setting, nestled right between the Pitons. What a glorious view to enjoy for a day! There are complimentary beach chairs, shade and restrooms...More

If we went staying on the other side of the island, Sandy beach would have been the local go to beach for our daily swims. SO PERFECT! Clean, safe, small rolling waves, no seaweed, crystal clear, beautiful surrounds, uncrowded and quiet. LOVED IT!

Great long beach to walk along but the water is still Atlantic Ocean so rough with lots of waves. Coconut beach is very similar.

Great beach in Vieux Fort not far from the airport. Nice to stop and soak in the views of the south island. Check out the bar Island Breeze while you are there!

Staying at the Coconut Bay resort is great, but the beach isn't wonderful for swimming. But, all you have to do is walk 10 minutes to the lovely Sandy Beach (yes, that's it's real name), and play in the water to your heart's content.

Yes, it's walkable. It's much better than the beach at coconut bay! Very clean, and a very nice walk where u will see the locals, as well as the horses on the beach!
