  • Last time I went I saw sewage in the water and it stunk so I left straight away, showered and then went to another beach (Cane Garden Bay)  more »
  • This beach has changed a lot since we last came. The coral has been damages so the beach is more challenging to swim in, harder to enter and exit the water.  more »
  • I've never been to Smuggler's Cove but I had like to say it seems like a pretty interesting spot and if I ever had to Bootleg soon Rum like a dum dum I would probably pontoon or sale right into the Smuggler's Cove it says you don't even have to think twice about it for sure I mean they just probably couldn't keep track at some point of all the people smuggling stuff> βœ‚incleSam πŸ•΅hhπŸ˜‰βš“πŸ›₯✈πŸ›₯✈πŸ›₯✈
  • Looks easy to get to on the map but "Route 1" is an unpaved road. Taxi ripoffs abound. Nice beach. Some areas with almost no rocks in the water. Wasn't that crowded but they were still out of umbrellas. Told us to find a bush for shade. .
