View of Great Lameshur Bay

Great Lameshur is a large cobblestone beach guaranteed to have less visitors than its sandy neighbor to the west, Little Lameshur Bay.

Getting There
At the end of Route 107 heading south, continue 0.6 miles on the dirt road. You can park near the big tamarind tree at the opening to the beach.

Donkey Cove
A fifteen minute rock scramble along the eastern shore will take you to Donkey Cove, an isolated cobblestone and sand beach which provides privacy, picnicking, swimming and snorkeling. It’s truly an idyllic spot and worth the extra effort it takes to get there.

Snorkeling
Great Lameshur is the gateway to Beehive Cove and the Tektite Snorkel.
