Arashi is rated as one of the best snorkeling places on the Island, but I think you have to be a little off-shore on the reef, so you need to go by boat. There is little to be seen from the beach. There are nice palm huts but not many and chaises can be rented. There is a food truck... More

We enjoyed bobbing in the gentle waves, a bit of snorkeling and a lot of full-on relaxing. This picturesque beach wasn't crowded, was clean and easily accessible.

If you want to get away from the crowds, this is the place! This is on the way to the lighthouse. The sand is amazing. There are a couple of cabanas there but they are first come first serve.

We enjoyed our time here and it is close to the Lighthouse with a nice view of the island. We were a little disappointed there were no places to change and no rest rooms, but for the island it was probably one of the best beaches. Don't waste the time going to Baby Beach.
