Huh. That sounds like an option. May try it next time.

And to the others who asked about chairs, I did use a lounge chair on the beach last summer. Didn't last long, however, as it started to rain. I say give it a try as people's tastes are so different. It is rocky in some areas, but there is also sand to be had. I don't recall having to pay extra for the chairs. I may have some pictures of the beach which I will try to find.

It's worth a visit just for the food and view IMO.

From these pictures and one's I've see of others it does look to be rocky with the sand coming and going. I did communicate with Indigo via Whatsapp and as I posted earlier chairs are free if you purchase drinks or food or $10.00 each if not. It's definitely on our to do list.

Carol, I’m petrified of heights. As Linda says, not scary at all. The road is paved and then it isn’t. Their parking lot was not paved, lots of rocks so we had to take it easy especially since our rental was low to the ground.

David and I checked it out in November. We walked around the restaurant and beach area but didn’t stay.

No reason we didn’t stay, other than we were scouting it out for another day’s lunch that never happened. Was looking at it for a lunch with the "girls" without having to drive over to the French side when the "guys" do the Rhino Riders.

I see that many people have mentioned how "it's not the best beach" and is rocky. I always felt that way about Dreams, as the beach there was ick....and Friar's Bay as well. Those beaches aren't nice at all. But if there is a good restaurant on site, it makes a beach tolerable. Just don't want to spend a long beach day there.

Exactly my thoughts too.

We have been there twice now and went twice when it was Kokomo and every time we have gone it has been excellent. They also do dinner there I think Wed thru Sat and it was great, give it a try you won’t be unhappy. The road in is very easy too

The difference between the beaches at Dreams and Friars, and the one at Indigo, is that the first two are at least walkable. I like to stroll along the beach in between relaxing in my chair. The beach at Kokomo (Indigo) was too small and rocky to do that the one day we were there. We didn't stay more than five minutes though, so that may change from time to time. The rocks at Friars come and go, and there's usually an area where you can get in and out of the water without encountering them.

Hi ! I scouted it out two occasions last year and it seemed to be closed each time.
I got confused on the way out, as the exit pattern was confusing to me...
But figured it out in a couple...
I had stopped on my way back to Divi Little Bay...

Had a wonderful late lunch here toward the end of our trip last November. Very pretty views. Beach is not the highlight, very limited and rocky, but saw several people using it.
Want to try dinner there next trip!
