Little Bay Beach


On the location of the oldest settlement on the island between Fort William and Fort Amsterdam, one finds Little Bay Beach. Restaurants and shops at Divi Great Bay Hotel and Belair Beach Hotel guarantee you a beach day with all amenities nearby, including the water-sports of Aquamania; jet skiing, snorkeling and sailing. People preferring boutique hotels will enjoy a splendid stay at L’Espérance Hotel 5 minutes from the beach.
