Larsen's Beach

Larsen's Beach Review

The long, wide fringing reef here is this beach's trademark. The waters near shore are generally too shallow for swimming; if you go in, wear a rash guard to protect against prickly sea urchins and sharp coral on the bottom. This area is known for its tricky currents, especially during periods of high surf, and has been the site of numerous drownings. It can be dangerous to snorkel here. Some nudity at the western end. Accessing this long strand of coarse, white sand requires hiking down a steep, rocky trail.Slippery when wet. Amenities: parking. Best For: solitude; sunrise, walking.
