Fodor's Expert Review Hope Bay Beach
Getting to this remote beach facing Bequia's windward side involves a long taxi ride across the island (about $12 from Port Elizabeth) and a mile-long (1½-km-long) walk down a semipaved path. Your reward is a magnificent crescent of white sand, total seclusion, and—if you like—nude bathing. Be sure to ask your taxi driver to return at a prearranged time. Bring your own lunch and drinks, as there are no facilities. Even though the surf is fairly shallow, swimming may be dangerous because of the undertow. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; nudists.
