This is a pretty beach! We came on a jetski tour (it left the hotel about 2:45pm) and it was low tide. Not sure if there was actually a reef - we tried to snorkel but there was a lot of sand and sea weed.

Nice location for snorkeling..but, this place will nickel and dime you. They charge for chairs,umbrellas and lockers. Splurge and pay the $5.5 to be taken by boat to the reef so you can actually swim around and enjoy it.

Beautiful and unique location. Snorkeling was good we saw Rays and skittish turtles however the reef and marine life was sparse compared to other Caribbean locations.

Beautiful small island right off the shore with TONS of medium size sea turtles to swim with. The snorkeling around the island is ok but GREAT to the right about 20 feet from the shore at the reef. We enjoyed a few hours sun bathing and listening to the waves crash against the back side.

You will need to hire a boat or take a tour as it is a small island located off shore. You can easily see most of the sights in approximately... More

We went on an excursion with our cab driver who we have used for the last two years. He is very informative and ready to answer any questions we had. The caves were interesting but the beach was absolutely stunning. The water was very warm and the beach seemed to go on for miles. This is a beach I would... More
