Detailed Review   
Two main beach areas, swimming restricted to one side.  Note that a ton of coral is exposed at low tide, so plan on swimming at high tide time.  Very quiet area of the island, super relaxing.

White Beach Cabins:

  • House 1-6 people
  • Private bathroom
  • Indoor & outdoor furniture
  • Air conditioned
  • Refrigerator, stove, dishware, TV & DVD player, BBQ Grill (firepit)
  • Beach is accessible directly via stairs (a fairly substantial climb/descent - not the best for those with real little kiddos for going up and down)
  • Dining available at the Ocean Cliff Club (limited hours) & at fast food facilities (pizza, burgers)
  • Small shoppette
  • Cabins range in cost from $45-75 per night.  Weekly and monthly discounts available.
