Brownes Beach overlooks Carlisle Bay and is one of the largest and busiest beaches on the island.  Lord Carlisle calmed the island through royal grand on behalf of King Charles I of England in 1627.

Brownes is a popular spot with locals and tourists at the weekend.  The beach is long with calm and clear waters. It's also right next to one of the most popular nightclubs on the island, Harbour Lights.

Lifeguards, shower, toilet facilities are all available, but not much shade so take care in the sun. If you're a keen diver then this is the place for you with over six shipwrecks in close proximity. The bay is reach in history and great for snorkelling and scuba diving because of its reef, colourful fish and many shipwrecks.
