The Top 7 Sandals® Resorts With The Best Beach

Settle in on the white sand beach underneath a straw umbrella, listen to the calming sounds of the ocean, and sip on an ice-cold signature cocktail - life doesn't get much better than this!

All Sandals resorts are located on beautiful beaches, but the shorelines at Sandals Emerald Bay, Sandals Grande Antigua, Sandals Negril, Sandals Grande St. Lucian, and Sandals Montego Bay are among the best in the world.

1. Sandals Emerald Bay in Exuma, The Bahamas

You simply can't beat Exuma, The Bahamas when it comes to powdery white-sand beaches, calm turquoise waters, wooden swings, and pure bliss! The water is so blue, you won't believe your own eyes! The beach at Sandals Emerald Bay is gorgeous, private, and gives you ample space to find a good spot.

2. Sandals Grande Antigua

Hands down, Dickenson Bay is the best of Antigua’s 365 beaches. Expect soft white sand, tall palm trees, and calm turquoise waters. Sandals Grande Antigua got voted the Most Romantic Resort in the World for a reason!

3. Sandals Negril in Jamaica

The expansive Seven Mile Beach never disappoints. This is Jamaica's best beach. Expect calm turquoise waters and stunning sunsets. It’s the perfect spot for a long walk on the beach or a leisurely swim with a cocktail in hand!


Did you know?: Seven Mile Beach is technically four miles long, with the remaining three miles of this shoreline, an area known as Bloody Bay, being just as breathtaking. A two-for-one beach in gorgeous Negril? What could be better?

4. Sandals Grande St. Lucian in Saint Lucia

Amazing views, calm waters, pristine shores, and lots to explore. The lush island of Saint Lucia is easily recognized by its twin mountains, the Pitons, but the beaches are also a defining feature. As a guest of Sandals Grande St. Lucian, you can enjoy the picturesque beach at the property whenever you desire, and also discover new beaches nearby, like those on Pigeon Island.

5. Sandals Montego Bay in Jamaica

A private white sand beach with beautiful, calm turquoise waters. Don’t forget to visit the Over-The-Water bar for a cocktail or two!

6. Sandals South Coast in Jamaica

A long beach that’s perfect for a romantic walk along the shores. The beach at Sandals South Coast (and the rest of the resort) is part of a private nature reserve. As a result, the ocean bottom can be quite rocky (bring water shoes!), but there are plenty of areas where you’ll find a sandy spot to float around. There's also lots to explore when snorkeling offshore.

7. Sandals Barbados / Sandals Royal Barbados

Pristine white sand beach. Although there’s a rock barrier to protect the shores, you shouldn’t expect the waters to be perfectly calm at all times. This is the perfect beach to sip on a cocktail and listen to the calming sound of the waves.


Pictured: Barbados is a small island, but it has no shortage of great beaches. Among the best is the white-sand beach at Sandals Barbados and Sandals Royal Barbados, which reaches out into wonderfully calm azure waters.

Bonus: Sandals Barefoot Cay in The Bahamas

Right off the coast at Sandals Royal Bahamian, Sandals guests have access to a private offshore island named Sandals Barefoot Cay. The beach on the back of the island is a great spot to go on a snorkeling adventure. Guests often report turtle sightings.


Fan the flames of romance on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean!

Calm turquoise waters, white sand, swaying palm trees, and thriving reefs can set the scene for an incredible tropical experience. Don’t be afraid to bury your toes in the sand, bask in the sunshine, and cast your worries away while doing so. No matter which Sandals resort you choose, you’ll have easy access to at least one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Plus, you can indulge in a host of other inclusions like unlimited gourmet dining at multiple restaurants, multiple bars including swim-up bars, entertainment day and night, land sports, and water sports.

Romance is so much easier when everything else is taken care of … and you’re relaxing on your very own slice of paradise.
