Treasure Beach offers day trips for sightseeing, exploring, and more.
The beach has a narrow strip of black and yellow-red sands and is about 600m long. The swimming is good, but since the beach is open, when strong seas are running to the South, small breakers sometimes deter timid swimmers.
The region is isolated from the main tourist areas. The minor roads connecting with the main highway at Black River or Santa Cruz tend to suffer damage in heavy rain, but are usual passable with care. Treasure Beach has been developed with a few small hotels and guest houses serving tourists seeking a very quiet seaside location.
There are a few simple restaurants in the village. The presence of tourists attracts a few hawkers to the beach to sell their wares.
One of the biggest buildings is the former Old Wharf Hotel, which now houses a therapeutic boarding school named Tranquility Bay.
