Francis Bay is typically a calm water beach, facing West so it's a great late afternoon beach, with the last sun of the day. Seagrass beds just offshore are feeding grounds for turtles. This is a great beach for families with small children.

Shopping
Mongoose Junction is the place to find the best shopping on island. Locals love Big Planet for surf/beach apparel for the family. Made in St John for the softest, coolest hand printed T's and more, made right on the island. Great bars and restaurants, too.
