Rawacou Recreation Park

Fodor's Review

At Rawacou Bay, close to the new Argyle International Airport, two stunning black-sand, high-surf beaches are separated by a rocky headland with a trail down to a man-made lagoon—a swimming pool created by placing huge boulders in the sea to prevent the high surf from smashing against the shore. The water by the beaches isn't safe for swimming, but the lagoon pool is; however, be cautious when the surrounding water is particularly rough. The beautiful grounds of Rawacou Recreation Park, shaded by coconut and sea grape trees, include a performance venue and vendor huts. The park is a popular site for picnics, weekend parties, and special events. Amenities: food and drink; parking; showers; toilets. Best for: partiers; swimming; walking.
