The idyllic Heywoods Beach, located in the north-western parish of St. Peter, is one of the island’s widest beaches. The calm, azure-blue waters with its safe, shallow reefs make this an ideal spot for swimming or snorkelling and the numerous, small rock-enclosed pools are perfect for children to splash about and play in.
The beach is mainly used by guests staying at one of the hotels but as with all the island’s beaches, it is also open to the public. Day visitors can either bring their own chairs, parasols and refreshments, or they can be rented from the hotel, where you can also find refreshments.
Water sports are very popular on Heywoods Beach, where you can have a go at water skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving or take a trip on a glass-bottomed boat to see the amazing colourful fish and marine life that thrive in the beautiful waters of this lovely coastline.
