POINTS OF INTEREST
Swimming and bodysurfing are great at this beach, which is bordered by the prime strand of sand reserved for guests of the Elbow Beach Hotel on the left, and the ultra-exclusive Coral Beach Club beach area on the right. It's a pleasant setting for a late-evening stroll, with the lights from nearby hotels dancing on the water. If you're planning a daytime visit during summer months, be sure to arrive early to claim your spot as this popular beach is often crowded. In addition to sun-tanners and joggers, groups of locals also gather here to play football and volleyball. Protective coral reefs make the waters some of the safest on the island, and a good choice for families. A lunch wagon sometimes sells fast food and cold drinks during the day, and Mickey's Beach Bar (part of the Elbow Beach Hotel) is open for lunch and dinner, though it may be difficult to get a table without a reservation. Amenities: parking (free); water sports. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
