Start your visit with a relaxing swim in the calm, warm waters. Then grab your mask and snorkel to explore the small reefs, home to schools of tropical fish, at the northern end of the beach.
Occasionally a sea turtle can be spotted here, as the beaches along this coast are a favourite nesting spot for the endangered Hawksbill turtle.
Although the beach is small, it is rarely crowded although during the peak visitor season (mid December to mid April) there are several guests from the beachfront hotel.
As you relax on the sandy shore or splash in the sea, you'll likely see some catamarans heading up the coast on their way to feed the sea turtles. You might also spot the Jolly Roger pirate ship with its calypso music filling the air!
Prospect beach is most easily accessed by parking at the Good Shepherd church at Fitts Village and strolling south along the beach.
