This is a great site for snorkeling. Water is shallow with lots of fish. The beach is a great place to bring kids. It is about a 25 min drive from the high rise district but it is worth it. There are also facilities here.

beach is beautiful but if you have to do #2 in at the bathroom facility you will be disappointed. The bathroom was very small, very smelly. Bathroom was awful.

we came here with DePalm tours to go snorkeling and we saw so many fish!!! It's very shallow so a bit awkward but the fish come right up to you!

I heard this is one of the best beaches and it was very nice however I was looking for someone more remote and less crowded. Huge area to swim in shallow waters, nice setting. However I only stayed for a short while since there were other beaches I would rather spend time at.

We spent the day here. Rented some chairs (pretty high priced) and got there early enough to get a grass hut (there are about 20 so you need to get there early to get one). The beach will get crowded later in the day. Good snorkeling on the right side all the way out to the inlet area. There is... More

Baby Beach is a lovely beach but bring your own beach chairs and cabanas! Three of us went to the beach in November and were promptly greeted by a man who was eager to rent us ripped lounge chairs, which we welcomed......BUT, the charge because we are tourists, was $8.00 per chair! We wanted a cabana to shield us from... More

This beach is like a lagoon as it has a breakwater wall. The sea is so clear the sand is so soft. It may be at the bottom point of the island but well worth the effort.Great for kids as shallow for ages and no waves really. All facilities you need though no great choice (two eateries) and a slush... More

This family friendly beach is also wonderful for seeing some colorful fish on the rocker side of the beach. A must go!

I was told this was the only beach where you can snorkel and see fish from the beach (most excursions take you to a nearby island). We took a taxi from Riu ($44 each way) and should have rented a car. It's a 40 minute drive, and you can rent snorkles for $10. We took some bread from breakfast and... More

We disliked pretty much everything. Everyone suggested this place as "the place" to snorkel, so we got in the car and drove down to check it out. Let me start by saying, that the beach is RIGHT NEXT TO an oil refinery. Yes... an oil refinery is your neighbor while you swim around. On top of that, this must be... More
