The waves are great and can be a challenge for little kids but great fun to body surf and lots of beach to play on.
There are many child friendly beaches open to the public, but if you like bobbing in gentle surf, to sometimes surf, South Beach is for you.

The sands are soft, the horizon has sails of all kids moving slowly (adding to the scenic island view) and the waters are nice and cold to even out the hot days.
While there are hotels and inns all over the island, the best way to stay and value is through renting a house - ideally with friends or family.
