Turquoise Bay versus Tabyana Beach

Recommended Posts

Torn between two excursions for this next February:  Tabyana Beach (possibly combined with Gumbalimba Park) versus Turquoise Bay (just the basic excursion, no frills).


The park looks interesting, but Turquoise Bay will probably win out if the consensus is that it is the better beach of the two.  But if Tabyana is definitely the better beach, then we will possibly opt to go ahead and likely include the park in the mix.   FYI:  There are no children in our party....so it's possible the park may not be that appealing to adults.


We will be on the NCL Getaway...it's a huge ship, so the crowd factor may have an influence on our decision.  Perhaps one of the beaches may be more likely to be less crowded than the other.


Look forward to your input.

I am not sure what you mean by better beach.  Tabyana is on West Bay Beach which is the premier beach on the island. It's one of those picture perfect c clear blue water, fluffy white sand with reef snorkeling steps from your lounger places. 


I have not been to Turquoise Bay but I understand it's hard packed sand, and the reef is too far out to snorkel, you have to take a boat. 


If quiet is really important choose Turquoise Bay.
