10 min by car from the Cruise Port. For those looking for an uncrowded and relaxing beach the best place is Higgs Beach. Located a few steps from Smathers, it does not attract the same crowds very likely because of the sea currents that flow in this area of the island. There are many oceanic debris, algae and the like in the area that can make it less attractive for swimming. But cleaners work hard to rake the beaches daily and eliminate any driftwood. The water is very clean and suitable for snorkeling.
