Fodor's Review

This isolated gold-with-speckled-black-sand shoreline on the northeast coast actually encompasses three bays. It is divided into two beaches. The Red River meets the sea at Hampstead Beach I. This is where Johnny Depp was chased by natives in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. The palm tree–lined Hampstead Beach II is on the sheltered and calm Batibou Bay. A 4x4 is the preferred mode of transportation to get here—or be prepared hike in from the road. Both beaches ooze with charm and are worth the effort. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; swimming.
