Set at the end of a picturesque mountainous drive, situated in a natural bay fanned by swaying palm trees and a white sandy beach, this is the perfect idyllic escape away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Perfect for surfing and paddling, this popular strip is also home to the best local delicacy ‘Bake and Shark’ (battered shark in fried bread served with condiments of your choice) ever tasted in the Caribbean.
