Nisbet Beach


This Atlantic-facing beach near the airport is a divine palm-lined strip of soft white sand, but windy conditions can make the sea quite choppy. An upscale beach bar belonging to Nisbet Plantation Beach Club provides sustenance and facilities.

Access is via the resort – turn into the hotel driveway, then follow the dirt track on the right down to the beach.
