Smugglers Cove Beach is tucked away on the East End and like many of our island’s beaches isn’t well marked other than a dirt road. To get there, take the East End Road and where the road bends towards Divi, stay along the coast towards Cramer’s Park and Point Udall. You will immediately see a dirt road to your left that goes down a slight hill.
During the week, the beach is often quiet and you may have it to yourself. As with any remote spot, don’t leave valuables in your car or alone on the beach.
There are no facilities at Smugglers Cove beach, so bring water and some snacks if you plan to spend the day. This is a beautiful swimming and snorkeling spot with views of Buck Island!
There’s plenty of beach to stretch out and relax with a good book and to catch some rays.
At the West end of the beach are the remnants of an old dock. This is a great spot to get in the water and snorkel to see the smaller fish that congregate around the rocks and ruins. Swim a little further out over the seagrass beds and you’ll see starfish, rays and the occasional sea turtle.
