Long Description:
This beach is at the east end of the Cross Island Highway.. It is located next to a clothing optional beach so move a little farther North and strip if you feel the urge. The sand is fine grained and feels like sugar in your hands and on your feet. There are three shops located nearby and a bar that has the friendliest people you will ever meet. As you look out to the ocean you are facing East (windward) and the waves are more intense on this side of the island than on the touristy West side. Geographically the next closest land mass is Cuba exactly 620 miles due East so don’t swim out too far. Swimming is NOT recommended as swimming can be treacherous if you go too far out - in some parts there is a deadly undertow that can sweep you out to sea in minutes. But perfect for solitary sunbathing. Do some beachcombing and when you are finished take up a game of volleyball or go have a tropical drink at Senior Iguana’s.
