Trying to find a beautiful quiet beach in STT

Postby Pebbles » Sun Jun 01, 2014 10:41 am

Our family of 6 just arrived in STT 2 days ago . We rented a villa and yesterday ventured off to Cokie beach... Lovely BUT could REALLY do without the hawkers pressing us from the time we arrived until we left. Kinda ruined it for us. Anybody have any suggestions on where to go to avoid that? I heard all beaches are public and if we wanted to could go to the Ritz Carlton. Just can't use beach loungers. Is that true? Has anybody done that?

My favorite quiet beach is Brewers Bay by the University. Sunday is a big beach day everywhere and not indicative of weekday conditions. Magens Bay to the far left facing the water is also a good quiet beach. Lindqvist Bay [Smith Bay Park] is a beautiful peaceful beach.
You can use any of the hotel beaches and some of them will rent beach lounges .

Smith Bay/Lindquist Beach, just past Pavillions and Pools.
Beautiful, quiet, not crowded.
Small fee, but managed by Magen's Bay Authority.
Limited facilities but worth it; we picnic there.

I would check out Hull Bay. Never more than 6 people there and you've got a bar/restaurant right there.

Coki is the only beach with loud music and vendors. Well, there may be music at Magens when groups have parties there, but that's usually on the weekends or govt holidays.

Another quiet beach is Emerald Beach. Where are you staying?

Secret Harbour is another fine choice. Lindbergh Bay as well. Note: There is no beach named Emerald Beach. Please call it by it's correct name, Lindbergh Bay. There is a hotel by that name on Lindbergh, not the beach.
