Located just South of Holetown, Paynes Bay Beach is one of the most beautiful on the island. It is a pristine stretch of white sand and turquoise waters that is almost always calm and perfect for swimming, snorkeling and a whole range of water sports.

Daphne’s offers primarily Italian cuisine with a touch of New World and classical French. Daphne’s is also a wonderful place to enjoy sunset cocktails and drinks are half price between 5pm and 7pm. Both the location and food at Daphne’s are stunning and well worth a visit.
