Quieter than the more popular Paynes Bay also located on the west coast, Alleynes Bay is a wonderful spot for swimming, seabathing and snorkeling.
The warm waters of the Caribbean sea lap gently onto the shore, inviting you in for a relaxing soak or swim. The crystal-clear waters are ideal for snorkeling, so bring along your gear. If you go a little further out to sea you're likely to encounter a turtle or two!
Early morning is a lovely time to stroll along the beach at Alleynes Bay. In fact you can start your walk on the west coast boardwalk (Folkestone is a good spot to start at) and walk all the way north to Alleynes Bay! The beach is shaded in the early morning making for a cool and relaxing stroll. Pick up the pace or break into a light jog if you're in the mood to burn some calories.
Get a refreshing drink or snack at the beachbar, or pack your own picnic to enjoy on the beach!
There is a lifeguard on duty at Alleynes Bay, but there are no beach facilities.
