Admiralty Bay One of the best harbours in the Caribbean because of its deep protected ‘U’ shape, calm, clear waters and ample depth, allowing large boats to come close to shore for maintenance. When anchoring stay clear of the ferry route to the main jetty. Princess Margaret A popular anchorage – generally calm with a glorious stretch of beach and perfect swimming conditions. (Yachts are required to anchor at least 200 yards off shore for the safety of swimmers). Jack’s Beach Bar offers drinks and a great menu and there is a dinghy dock. Lower Bay One of Bequia’s best beaches. A long stretch of powdery white sand with crystal clear water, excellent for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing with beach chairs available for rent. A stretch of on-shore reef provides an area of shallow pools along the shoreline making it especially suitable for children. Keegan’s Beachside Bar & Restaurant and De Reef Beach Bar are situated in the middle of the bay.

The delightful Sugar Reef Café is right by the waterside, offering cold drinks and delicious meals.
