After a fantastic morning we moved about a mile northwards to White Bay, also on Guana Island.


Over the last few years we have seen many, many beaches, of all shapes and sizes, but it has to be said that White Bay is one of the most perfect, beautiful beaches that we have ever seen. It’s about half a mile long, with white sand, palm trees and other vegetation on the steep slopes behind the beach, shallow, clear, turquoise water and no buildings on the shore line.  There are a small number of buildings atop the small hills around the beach but otherwise it is completely unspoilt. Large tarpon dart around the shallow waters and small reef fish gather around the boat.


The island itself is private, which is probably why it is so pristine. You are allowed to go ashore on to the beach, but beyond the littoral access is not allowed.   Here are some pictures:
