Chatham Bay, Union Island

#4 of 7 in Things to do in Union Island
Journey by boat to the secluded shores of Chatham Bay. Here, you’ll have a chance to experience some of the best snorkeling on Union Island, thanks to the huge schools of fish that live in the area. You’ll also get to spot sea turtles and sharks, if you’re lucky. On shore, the remote beach has a small bar and restaurant, where you can relax and enjoy seafood and traditional dishes. You can also hike up the hills bordering the beach for good views across the bay.

  • This bay is really a gem, not too many other boats, normally very protected and a way to get away from the constant wave motion that you find in many other places in the region. It has a relaxing...  more »
  • The place is awesome and if you want to drink or eat something I recommand the Chatham Bay Resort and spa. The waitress was so kind and professional. Cocktails and foods was perfect. Thank you !  more »
  • This place is charming and great for diving. We dived with Cousteau's Caribbean Diving and they were excellent, even rendezvous with our yacht. Very safety conscious and great gear, small groups and showed us sea horses, frogfish, sea slugs and a whole lot more. The beach bars are great and local, good food too with safe anchorage. This place should be a marine reserve!
  • Lovely beach but a dreadful resort (Tenuta Chatham Bay). Absolutely appalling lack of any service or management and if you complain the manager of the resort may use physical and other force to kick you out of the resort prematurely by denying you and your child of breakfast, bathroom towels, bed linen or beach towels. We stayed for 2 weeks less one day after having been assisted by local police to move to another property on the island. Never prepay a non-refundable charge to stay there as you will be trapped in a resort of horror for the entirety of your stay. Beach is beautiful but also full of plastic and other waste, which just stays there to rotten or last as it does not get cleaned up by anyone. If visiting from a boat or yacht I would highly recommend the nearby restaurant Sunset Cove at the other end of the beach. Friendly staff and atmosphere - complete opposite to Tenuta Chatham Bay.
