|About these ratings|
Located on the island's southwest tip, Cupecoy is a set of three beaches surrounded by limestone cliffs. Travelers say the sunsets here have to be seen to be believed, with dramatic views of Saba in the distance. Consider enjoying the day's end in one of the area's beach bars, or by buying a cold beer from one of the local vendors walking along the shore. Cupecoy Beach is also noteworthy as a GLBT-friendly beach, and families should beware the clothing-optional section of the beach's northwest end.
You can visit Cupecoy for free, but there are paid parking lots at the adjacent Cupecoy and Sapphire beach clubs.
