Magens Bay Beach

There is a $5 entrance fee for Magens Bay Beach.

Coki Point Beach

This is Brenda and Franko’s favorite beach by far.  Nestled on the island’s northeastern end, Coki Point Beach is an excellent choice for all watersports activities. Wade just five to ten feet into the water to be surrounded by all sorts of amazing sea creatures and fish. You can even hand-feed them with doggy biscuits.  Want to sample our local flavors? You’ve found a great place to enjoy fresh lobster, fish, conch, and other delicacies. Sip on a local drink and utilize the umbrellas, snorkel gear, chairs and locker rooms available for rent. Showers and restrooms are available for everyone’s convenience. You can also take the boardwalk to the famous Coral World Ocean Park.

Emerald Beach

As blue skies meet the crystal clear waters, the color of this beautiful stone – emerald comes to life at one of the island’s most stunning beaches. Another favorite for locals and visitors alike, this is the perfect getaway. Watersports, including jet skiing, snorkeling, and parasailing are among the amenities available at Emerald Beach. For the kids, there is a water park located at the far right end of the beach. Because Emerald Beach is on resort property, chairs and umbrellas are reserved for resort guests. With the many sea grape and coconut trees that line the beach, you can still find great coverage from the sun’s rays.
