Water sports

Water sports are available in abundance in Runaway Bay, mostly operated from the all-inclusive hotels. The area is known for scuba diving, there are coral reefs and wrecks of boats, planes and even cars to explore. Most diving operations in the hotels take customers from other hotels.

Golf

Beaches

The biggest draw of Runaway Bay are its beaches. Several stretches of white sand beach are laid out before the turquoise Caribbean sea. Most of the beaches are owned by large hotels and are off-limits to non-guests. However, there are two notable public beaches at both ends of town, Cardiff Hall Beach to the West (featuring Flavours restaurant and bar and changing facilities) and Fisherman's beach to the East.
