It was a wonderful trip, we traveled about 20 miles to a remote island for lunch and snorkeled in the beautiful aqua blue water in a beautiful coral reef with lots of colorful fish. It was a full day of fun, the crew took great care of... More

If you go to Anguilla, you must go here! The waters are absolutely amazing! The sand is white and it seems like you are in the middle of nowhere! Take a walk around the beach where nobody can see you.. its really beautiful and secluded. Good snorkeling too!

We visited here while on an excursion. It was peaceful beautiful beach with turquoise water, even though a lot of excursions seem to stop here. There is one restaurant which serves a delicious lunch, and a walk up bar is available. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rent. We snorkeled here and saw some different fish.
