The island is famous for its beaches – and deservedly so. The island’s 35-mile (68 km) coastline has 33, many of them among the best in the Caribbean. Their soft white sands slope into shallow blue waters as calm, soothing and warm as the islanders’ gracious welcome and easy-going attitude. There are beaches to match every taste. Many are secluded and quiet, a few are a little busier, some are perfect for gentle walking and others are coves that could have been designed for diving or snorkeling.
