  • Good beach for snorkelling. unfortunately it was destroyed by huricane irma so there is no shop or anything. there still is a beach and the snorkelling is still available. going into the water can be a bit tricky though. there are some locals selling pina colada and on a rare occasion lobster. we found these portugese man o war when visiting so not such a good idea to test the water. later is was better
  • Fun beach with white sand and coral mix. Free entry, and there's a small shop that offers food and drink. Good sea life in the water with lots of tropical fish and stingrays. Makes for a fun time!
