Getting There: Located along Airport Road just off route 30, Lindberg Bay is accessible by car, taxi or public bus. Those taking the dollar-ride will have a short walk ahead of them and should get out at the Airport Road juncture.
Lindberg Bay's greatest virtue is probably that it is almost always crowd-free, especially during the week, though on weekends it is not unusual to find a few local families at play in the usually-calm water. The downside is its proximity to the airport, where craft take off and land, quite literally, right 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.
