did you stay at the resort for this beach....apparently this beach doesn't allow public access unless you are staying with the resort associated to this beach....is that true
There are no "resorts" associated with this beach. It's a small, tranquil bay which has villas/houses facing the beach however they don't own the property around the beach (all beaches are public) but I hear they are trying to block access to the public since it's getting more and more popular and I guess they don't like all the traffic. There is clear path from the road to the beach however some of the home owners across the street have installed large rocks and posted "no parking" signs. This really sucks since it's such a beautiful beach with white powdery sand and the water is very calm (great for kids to play). My husband and I visit this beach every time we visit TCI and the beach is always pristine (people seem to respect the environment and pick up after themselves which is a good thing). You will need a vehicle to get to it since it's south of the island near Sapodilla Bay which is also very nice. Going to Las Brisas for lunch after your visit is highly recommended. They have a pool where you can rinse the salt water off and wait for your lunch.
There are some parts of Taylor Beach that have private access, but the beach itself is public. There are public access points along the whole beach.
There is no resort at Taylor Bay, only villas. Make sure the villa you are inquiring about has an easement to the beach.
The owners of villas at Taylor Bay did not block off the beach - the owner (bank) of the private land between the villas and the beach blocked it off. Villa owners then had to buy easement to be able to cross the bank land legally.
The bank also put up a gate at the path that comes down from Ocean Point to the beach.
I had a local tell me that residents of Taylor Bay have made it difficult to get too! TCI laws allow access to all beaches as non can be called private but they have managed to somehow make access impossible
