Starfish Beach


Alternate name:
Playa Blaydin
Good for:
Swimming, snorkeling, paddleboarding, boating

Sand Type/Color:
White Sand, lots of broken coral so not a soft sandy beach for easy walking
It is generally pretty clean
Water Quality: 
The water here is usually very clear and bright, great for seeing to the bottom.

On the north side off Route 200 west of town. Turn at the Rompeolas Pier and find the small gravel pull-off on the left. There is parking here.

This beach is protected from the trade winds (and Sargassum weed) by the Rompeolas (aka Mosquito) Pier. That makes it good for snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding, where you can see fish, rays, and starfish. The beach itself has lots of broken coral on it, and the sand is bright, but it’s not a classic wide sandy beach.

There is a little shade here near the right side, if the tide is low enough.
