Foul Bay, Saint Philip Parish
(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Head off the beaten track to Foul Bay, which despite its name charms with a scenic white sandy beach. The pristine, often deserted stretch of coastline is bordered by tropical perennials and palms, and bookended by two rugged points. Lounge in the natural shade of the trees, or get active on the water. Note that the swells in the bay lend themselves better to activities like bodyboarding than swimming. The beach has no facilities, so bring whatever you need--but leave valuables at home, as theft has been reported. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Saint Philip Parish holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Foul Bay and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
