Great Family Beach

Looking for a beach the entire family can enjoy? Paynes Beach may be the perfect solution. Located just a stone's throw from the prestigious Sandy Lane resort, and surrounded by local hotels, Paynes Beach offers golden sands, crystal water, waterfront activities, and wildlife galore.

Rent sunbeds and watersports equipment for the day, peruse the local shops and vendors, or get to know families of turtles and swim with schools of rainbow-colored fish. Exceptional scenic views and waterfront fun await the entire group at this busy, but never quite packed beach.

Just be sure to warn the kids not to eat the Machineel fruit. The flourishing trees are well-marked, but the tiny apples they produce are poisonous.
