Delightful

Everything everybody says about this place is correct. The reef straight out from the walkway was amazing. Brings your mask and flippers and enjoy the delight.

This was really the best spot we found and it was as easy to snorkel as getting in the water. Thankfully this beach was unaffected by typical early December weather/maritime conditions.

We enjoyed a wonderful day of snorkeling and walking along the beach here. We stayed at the West Bay area, so this was quick for us to get to.

We heard that the snorkeling was good at this beach, but no so much for us. The day we went was a beautiful clear sunny day, no too much wind, but the water was not clear at all. It looked like it was all stirred up. Maybe there was a storm out in the ocean and it effected the water.... More

This is one of the best snorkeling sites on the island... a must do! The coral reef is just a short swim from the beach, and the currents are not a concern at this location. We saw dozens of tropical fish varieties...including the prettiest I have ever seen...called a blue damselfish.

This wonderful public beach is NOT visited by hoards of cruise ship people. There are trees for shade as you dry off. The snorkeling is great with 2 large areas of coral to check out. The fish are varied and plentiful. Some areas have the smaller fish sort like a "fish nursery"but there are plenty of larger fish also. The... More

Had the opportunity to visit this nice stretch of beach that is literally in front of a cemetery. The beach has some wonderful shade underneath the trees and the snorkeling is literally just off the beach. We saw some great fish and stingray and were able to enjoy a uncrowded beach. Note that there are no washroom facilities here

We snorkeled at Cemetery Beach, Governor's Beach, in front of the Marriott, Rum Point, and Eden Rock. Cemetery was a fantastic place to snorkel. Lot's of fish, even very close to shore, but if you go out to the reef it's really awesome. Parking is very limited so if you have a car I suggest getting there early in the... More

Great snorkeling right off the beach. Park across the road. Nice clean safe beach. Left cooler and belongings on the beach while we snorkeled.

Not a unique review here. Great snorkeling on quite the picturesque beach. The main reefs are a bit of a swim, but 100% worth it when you arrive. Lots of fish of all sizes and colors. I saw one sting ray and couldn't keep up with it. Make sure you stretch those calf muscles! Crystal clear water and plenty of... More
