Lindberg Bay’s greatest virtue is probably that it is almost always crowd-free, especially during the week, though the horseshoe stretch of beach does host two smallish hotels. The downside is its proximity to the airport, where craft take off and land, quite literally, across the road.
Airplane noise notwithstanding, it remains a fine choice for someone looking to escape the crowds at an easy-to-get-to, relaxing place with nice amenities. One can while away an afternoon almost alone, enjoying a good book, a lovely view of the Caribbean and perhaps a cocktail from one of the two beach bars. Fairly limited shade options make this a less than optimal choice for those with small children or sensitivity to the sun. Southern and Western exposure, however, make it a prime location to watch the sun set. It also affords dramatic views of the virginal green hills toward the island’s wilder West End.
