Though we wouldn’t call the softish sand here “ideal” for running, the Seven Mile Beach is a popular option for a long, safe sand run. Most visitors can simply set out from their resort and carry on the beach for up to 7 km one way. The quality of the sand may pose a bit of an extra challenge, but the views looking west into the Caribbean are stellar. As always, run near the waterline at low tide for firmest sand conditions.

If you don’t care for sand running, a great alternative is the concrete sidewalk along the beach (West Bay Road). This well-traveled route draws activity almost all day long, but is less crowded in the early morning.
