Dorsch (Sandcastle Beach)

Dorsch

Dorsch is a beautiful long beach located a short distance from Frederiksted. The shoreline is mostly sandy but there are a few rocky spots, this is the case in the water as well. Good snorkeling is available around the rocks. On weekdays the beach is quiet. On weekends and holidays it’s popular for family picnics and parties. A section of Dorsch is sometimes called Sandcastle Beach due to a hotel on site with a similar name.  There are two hotels on the beach and restaurant/bar facilities are available.

We had a great time at Dorsch. Its a beautiful long beach, nice for taking a walk. The shore was largely sandy, but look out for the rocky spots. Some spots of the beach have more natural shade than others. The snorkeling was really nice, water was calm and clear. Saw various small and medium fish. Had lunch at the beachside restaurant at one of the hotels on the beach. Great day.
