    This is close to town. the beach is a nice area with beach chairs and umbrellas. You can spend the day at the beach and then later take a cab to town to get all the shopping in.  more »

    Water was calm. I believe due to this being Caribbean side. I actually thought it would be better than it was. I like the Friagate Bay beaches better.  more »
