There are three main beaches but two of them (Hideaway Beach and Residents' Beach) are not officially open to the public. The public beach is, nevertheless, beautiful. The Residents' beach is just a continuation of the public beach, so you can just walk straight onto it. At least you'll be able to use the beach bars up that end. You're not officially supposed to do this, but everybody does. I'm not sure I know what you mean by beach 'tents'.
