Smugglers Cove

This is a small sandy beach just  a 10 minute drive from here. There are seagrapes and almond trees for plenty of shade. The water here is calm for swimming all year round and for snorkelling. You can also buy drinks from the beach vendors.

Long Bay

This is your beach. A lovely mile long stretch of pure white sand, ideal for early morning and late afternoon strolls. The beach is good at the western end as there are not many rocks. Beach offers good bathing for most of the year.

Apple Bay

This is the surfing beach in wintertime.

Cane Garden Bay

This is a beautiful curved bay and is a popular anchorage with yachters. The water is calm and ideal for small children. There are plenty of restaurants on this beach.  Try to avoid this beach on a cruise ship day.

Brewers Bay

This is a very quiet beach with the remains of a Rum Distillery on the roadside. Good for swimming for most of the year but can get a little rough during the winter months.

Josiah's Bay

This is on the north shore and has a dramatic pure white sand beach, good for sunbathing and excellent during the summer months as it is quite shallow and calm.  In the winter however, it is rough and has an undertow.  There are bars that serve drinks.  Good for surfing during winter.

Lambert Beach

This beach is palm fringed, wide and sandy. The best time to visit is in the summer months as this is a bit of an undertow in winter. It is also home to the Lambert Beach Resort.

Little Bay

This is my favourite little cove. It is quite an adventure getting to it as you need a 4 x 4 and it is down a very rough track. It is well worth the journey though as you will find that you will be on your own. During the summer months this is spectacular but a  little rough in December January and February with an undertow sometimes.


Beef Island

Long Bay

This is another Long Bay. It is a lovely curving beach, good for swimming most of the year. It is located behind the salt pond so be careful not to disturb the nesting terns.

Jost van Dyke

White Bay

Foxys Beach

This is the home of Foxys Beach Bar. A great place for a sun downer, just before you bring your boat back to Cane Garden boat rentals. This place goes wild on New Years Eve. A must do if you’re here, take the late ferry over.
