Took the local bus to Valley Church Beach ($1.50 each), we used the instructions provided on the CC "ports of call" board and had no trouble whatsoever getting there. The beach and water are beautiful, there is plenty of beach to walk and gather shells (lots of shells!). We rented two chairs and an umbrella for $20. If you get there early enough there is some natural shade but it is limited so expect a lot of company under your tree as the day progresses:) We returned to the ship by taxi after bargaining with the driver for $5 per person. We went back early so we had time to walk around the pier shops. You might want to visit Caribbean Gems if you are looking for beautiful jewelry and reasonable prices. The staff was very personable, they gave me a nice cold Corona to go with my new sapphire bracelet!
