“Scenic”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Walking through the caves to this beach was fun and this beach was lovely. Pretty setting overlooking other islands and yachts. This beach was less crowded than the Baths and the sand was soft. My husband did some snorkelling, but there wasn't much of interest to see. I enjoyed our brief stay on this beach and the walk back to the car park through cacti alley was enjoyable. This beach is quite small and there isn't much shade. There were no facilities that I could see (but there are facilities at the Baths).

“Some adventure in store to get to the Devil's Bay”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

The trip over: From the cruise ship port, it is approximately a 10 minute brisk walk to the ferry. We took Speedy's which was a return fare. The boat leaves at 9AM so you will have to be prompt to leave the ship to make the schedule. The ride over is about 25 minutes. On the other side, Speedy's has a few open taxis that will take visitors to the Baths and Devils Bay. Pay attention to when the taxi will return, because you need to catch the ferry back.
The Cost: Visitors must pay a fee to enter at the car park. There is also a washroom and restaruant at the top. It is a little bit of a hike down to the water.
The Beach Choice: Once at the bottom, you can go to the Baths to the right (which appears more commercial) or go to the left to Devils Bay. We chose to go to adventure route to the Devils Bay. To do so, you must be prepared to crawl though rocks and wade through some water. If you have brought water shoes on your trip, this is the place to use them. Try to follow the markers (not always visiable) and not always the people. The trek is a little vigorous with the wet rocks and narrow spaces so be careful on your footing and watch to make sure any valuables do not get wet. Be patient because some areas have room for one single file only and you may have to wait for the line of people or yield.
The Payoff: Now that you have scampered through the rocks, once at the beach, you will notice that it is very scenic and there is nothing else (no washrooms, no vendors, no restaurants) - just the beach so make sure you have some supplies. Now enjoy.
The Return Trip. After the sun and water, a hike though the rocks did not seem appealing. There is a path back to the front entrance from Bay that does not require you to go back through the rocks. The walk up can be 10-15 minutes and it is all uphill on a path that is not groomed so give yourself some time.
Overall: Worth the effort to come because it was a different kind of beach experience. More of an adventure to get to the beach than just being at the beach.
