I fell in love with this beach the moment I swam out to snorkel. Amazing variety of fish, coral and anenomes just off the beach. Turquoise water so amazingly clear! Grab a chair, a snorkel and a drink from the restaurant and you will have a fantastic day!

This beach is an awesome place to snorkle from. Just a few meters out in the water you will see beautiful coral reefs and lot of fish. You don't have to go out with a boat, everything is here. There is a fee of 6$ to get in but it is worth it. When the cruisers come to MoBay the... More

If you are traveling with kids, this is a great beach to go to. The cost to get in is very minimal and there are plenty of staff and servers, lifeguard, security to feel very comfortable here. There is a great place next door on the beach where people got a lot of food and drinks, which looked amazing. Right... More

Small, crowded, and the beach at my hotel was just as good, and not crowded. I was there in 1982 and it wasn't as crass. Too many people trying to sell you stuff you don't want.

We paid the entrance fee, rented two chairs and an umbrella and set out to enjoy an afternoon at the beach. It was crowded but we were comfortable. The kids saw some fish while swimming with goggles. They swam out to a trampoline float and jumped off. We had lunch at one of the restaurants just off the sand. Overall... More

Arrived via taxi off the Carnival Magic. Although there were some hustlers outside the beach, their weren't any on the beach. The water and sand was beautiful. There was a $6 entry fee to the beach and they also sold umbrellas & chairs. Go early because the later the day goes on, the beach gets full.

Loved the safety and chair rental availability. The stamps given for in a and out washed off pretty easily, but the front gate people usually remembered me. :)

Like in the tittle - not worth to spend $ to be on this beach. Usually overcrowded with locals constantly wanted to do "business" with you.
