The island is only 22kms across so there are plenty of other options to explore further East, West and North. Below are a selection of options along the South Coast

South Point

One of the most consistent spots on the island. Breaks over flat reef and can produce fun lefts.

Surfers Point

A great beginners beach break and longboarders wave. Perfect for kids also.

Freights

Sand bottom left, not the most consistent but can produce some glorious long intermediate waves and photo perfect tropical barrels.

Silver Sands

Consistent fun right reefbreak that can get more interesting as the swell increases.

Brandons

Right and Left reef break , on the less consistent South West side!

Crane Beach

On the Eastern South side. Very consistent beach break that suits all standards.

Long Beach

Long beach can have some really fun waves and is a great go to spot on a daily basis. It can close out and be hard to read at times but always worth a look.
