 The island also is known for having 365 beaches or one for every day of the year. One of the better ones that is close to the cruise docks is Miller’s Beach. A taxi is the best way to get there; be sure to negotiate rate before getting into the cab. Another great one is Galley Bay Beach where the, surfing conditions are first-rate.
