About Rodgers Beach
Rodgers Beach lies just a few hundred feet northwest of Baby Beach, in the ‘Sint Nicolaasbaai’ (Saint Nicolas Bay). It is much smaller with a length of just 265 meters and it is divided into two parts. Because of the lack of amenities and because it is less beautiful than Baby Beach, Rodgers Beach is a quiet beach. But if you are looking for tranquility combined with white sand and clear water with that typical Caribbean color, Rodger’s Beach is a great place to visit. Enjoying the sun, swimming or snorkeling are just the things to do. Bear in mind that you have to take into account that, when looking west, your view might be “disturbed” by the looks of the oil-refinery of San Nicolas. On the other hand, it creates a rather rare contrast of industrial activity and nature at its purest. You can make some great pictures here, especially when the sun sets and the day comes to an end. As always, when visiting sunny places, do not forget to take some bare necessities like a hat or cap, tanning lotion, water, sunglasses, beach towels and food to enjoy your visit at Rodgers Beach!
