Gibney Beach is one of the 4 beaches located in Hawksnest Bay. It is located just east of Hawksnest Beach. Gibney Beach does not have a sign, parking is very limited, and there aren’t any picnic tables, restrooms, covered pavilions or changing rooms. Gibney Beach does have fluffy white sand, good snorkeling, and because parking is limited there’s normally not very many people on the beach.

To get to this beach you enter through the gate that leads to the Oppenheimer community building by walking down a short driveway. This is what the entrance looks like from the road.

Gibney beach is also called Oppenheimer Beach after J. Robert Oppenheimer, who invented the atomic bomb. Read more about the history of Gibney and Oppenheimer Beach HERE.

P.S. I just made a page about all St John things on my blog HERE.
