Fodor's Expert Review Paynes Bay Beach
The stretch of beach just south of Sandy Lane is lined with luxury hotels—Tamarind, The House, and Treasure Beach among them. It's a very pretty area, with plenty of beach to go around, calm water, and good snorkeling. Public access is available at several locations along Highway 1, though parking is limited. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
