Fodor's Expert Review Fort St. Catherine Beach
One of the larger north-shore beaches has water deep enough for a serious swim. If and when you get beach-bummed out, head over to the military fort next door, for which this beach is named. A quick tour of the structure will be a welcome break from the strong sun, as there is little shade along the beach. For a romantic evening, enjoy a beautiful alfresco meal at Blackbeard's Hideout overlooking Achilles Bay just across the street. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free). Best for: solitude; snorkeling; sunset; swimming.
