Beautiful Beach - We went out on a boat with Leslie to snorkel - it was great! Look for Leslie. She is the only female boat driver, single mom and does snorkel tours for a very reasonable price.

Surprised by the beauty of this beach! See my review for Infinity Bay. Water is crystal clear and ocean floor is perfect and reef is like 20 feet to a beach.
