When you visit South Friars Beach, take your snorkeling gear to get up close and personal with native marine life. The water stays shallow for a long distance from the shore, letting you explore a wide area and spot common creatures like small squid, tropical fish, and sea urchins. If you get bored, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or jet skiing. The clean sand creates an enjoyable environment for sunbathing, and multiple dining and drinking options sit conveniently along the sand.

  • Had a wonderful time here at this beach! We rented some jet skis for an hour! Water was crystal clear and calm. This side of island is calm but the north side is rough enough to surf.
  • Not so well liked. Our visit was quite full, because many Crusaders were dumped. Maybe it's different but on other days.
