Most of the beach at Europa Bay is cobblestone and coral rubble,
with the exception of a small sandy area at the extreme northern
end. The sea bottom consists of patches of coral, small rocks,
grass and algae.
beach is cooled by onshore easterly trades and is usually quite
deserted, and thus, makes for a great picnic spot, as well as
a place to enjoy seclusion and natural beauty. The onshore breeze
brings ashore flotsam from afar making Europe Bay an excellent
venue for beachcombers.
Europa Bay can be reached by hiking the Lameshur Bay Trail.

Waves generally break over the shallow reef close to shore, but
when the sea is flat you can enter the water to snorkel at
the north end of the beach. The best snorkeling here (for experienced
snorkelers only and only then on extremely calm days) is around
the point to the south.
