the beach at Salt Pond Bay, Lameshur is an excellent alternative
to north shore beaches, especially on days when winter swells
may make swimming and snorkeling on the north uncomfortable.
Lameshur is further away and harder to drive to than Salt Pond,
involving a difficult and steep section of road, but unlike Salt
Pond, the beach is conveniently located right next to the parking
area. Lameshur is also a perfect place to take a refreshing dip
in the sea after exploring the nearby ruins or taking a hike
on the Lameshur Bay or Bordeaux Mountain Trail.
At the end of Route 107 traveling south, continue one mile on
the dirt road. You can park anywhere along the road in the
vicinity of the beach.
Facilities are limited to picnic tables, barbecues and chemical
Beginners can snorkel around the rocks just off the beach. On
calm days, the east side of the bay leading towards Europa
offers more advanced snorkelers steep cliffs and canyons often
teaming with fish. Lameshur Bay is also the gateway to the
Yawzi Point, a favorite snorkel.
