Fernandez Bay Beach

Fodor's Review

Imagine the perfect calm cove in the tropics—a 1-mile stretch of glistening, pristine white sand, inviting shade under coconut palms and sea grape trees, quaint resort cottages and verandas facing the spectacular sand, and calm azure water. Two resorts (Fernandez Bay Village and Island HoppInn) have restaurants and bars built on decks overlooking the water and they each rent kayaks and paddleboards to guests. The beach is often deserted, so dinner for two might really mean just that. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: solitude; snorkeling; sunset; swimming; walking.
