Frenchman's Cove beach
Hike to a Hideaway
Frenchman's Cove is more than a beach. It's an idyllic escape. After paying a small entrance fee—used to preserve the grounds—you'll hike about five minutes through verdant gardens flanked by an emerald river stream, before the views open onto a glorious beach and the Caribbean Sea. This cove was once a favorite romantic escape for Elizabeth Taylor and Burt Reynolds, and it's not hard to see why. When you tire of the beach and waves, hop over to the river and swing from the vines into the fresh water. It's an ideal spot to spend the day, for couples or for families.
