The Ultimate Guide To the Best Beaches At Sandals Resorts

Updated: Mar 11

Are you a beach lover? Do you crave that crystal clear Caribbean Water? If you are looking for Sandals Resorts that have the best beaches as well as fantastic amenities, then you have stumbled upon a great resource!

So, I admit it. I am a beach snob. I love not only a great beach area with those beach palapas, but I also insist on the beautiful water. I mean who doesn't have crystal clear blue-green water in their mind when they think of the Caribbean? And, I am always on the hunt for the best beaches at Sandals Resorts!

If you are looking for the perfect Sandals resort with the BEST beach, then keep reading.

Earning my top spot is Sandals Emerald Bay. Located in Exuma, Bahamas, it is one of the most easily accessible Sandals Resorts. Just a quick flight from Miami and you will see some of the most beautiful water that you could ever imagine. The approach to the island from the plane is absolutely breathtaking, so make sure that you get a window seat! Check out my view below. No photoshop required!

On our recent trip to this beautiful resort, I was absolutely blown away when I saw the color of the water. Most of the rooms are ocean view or resort view unless you opt for one of the most sought after Butler Suites. But, ALL of the rooms are either Club Level or Butler Level rooms, which both come with some nice perks.

The beach here is in a cove, so you won't encounter as many vendors even though all of the beaches are public. The water is prisitine and the beach is deep and long for those long beach walks we dream of. This is why Sandals Emerald Bay has earned my top spot as the #1 Sandals Resort with the best beaches.

Coming in at #2 is Sandals Negril. This resort is located on the absolutely stunning Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica. It's located about 1 1/2 hours from the airport at Montego Bay. But, believe me, it is worth the drive!

Seven Mile Beach is one of the most, if not THE most, beautiful beaches in all of Jamaica. The beach here is long and a little more narrow than most, but it is one of my favorites. Sandals Negril is located on a public beach, so, you can expect to see vendors here. If that kind of thing bothers you, then this might not be the right resort for you. But, the water here is absolutely amazing! And, it is one of the best beaches at Sandals Resorts.

Many of the rooms here are beachfront. We stayed in a Club Level room in the Paradise Building on the ground floor. My chair was only 25 steps from my room. And, believe me, I counted them!

Sandals Grande Antigua is number 3 on my list of the best beaches of all of the Sandals Resorts. Just a short 20 minute drive from the airport and you will arrive at not only one of the most gorgeous Sandals Resorts, but one the the most beautiful beaches in

Antigua (An-tee-ga).

Located on Dickenson Bay, one of 366 beaches in Antigua, it will certainly not disappoint if you are a beach lover like me. The only drawback to this beach is that it is also a public beach that is long and walkable and you may encounter more local vendors here.

Which One is Right for You?

These 3 are my personal favorite Sandals Resorts with the best beaches. Of course, this is my opinion. Overall, all of the Sandals Resorts are located on some pretty amazing islands and some very pretty beaches. So, whichever of these Sandals you choose will certainly not disappoint you if beach is your number one priority.

But, when choosing the best Sandals Resort for you, there are more things to consider than just the beach. Each resort is different and has a different vibe. So, choosing the right one can be tricky.
