Sparrow Bay, Carriacou
This beautiful and mostly deserted beach is a ten minute walk from the villa, or two minute drive. The swimming is excellent with easy water access. From the villa, you head right at the end of the driveway (click here for a walking map), walk about five minutes and turn left at the white gate with private road sign. Walking down this stretch you'll find lots of lime trees and a few guava. The road turns left and you follow this until you come to an intersection of four roads, turn right here and follow the road for a minute or so until you see a road going down towards the beach to your right. A few steps in you'll see the public access stairs down to the beach. An easy walk for most all ages, however please note there is about 20 concrete stairs down to the beach. There are no changing facilities or amenities at this beach so come with your suit on and just leave your towels at the bottom of the stairs. It's a very safe beach (as are all the beaches in Carriacou), however, you never know, so please don't leave your valuables out. If you walk to the end of the beach you'll find the Roundhouse Restaurant which is open for lunch and dinner most day. If you want to continue exploring, you can head back up the stairs, keep to the right and follow the road down to Tom's Bay for your second swim.
