This beach is very easy to find via bus or car. A narrow byway takes you directly from West Bay road to the beach. The reef is located to your right and all you have to do is wade out until the lovely warm water is to your chest, or shoulders in my case, and begin kicking. Bring a picnic... More

Cemetery Beach faces the perfect direction to shelter from the wind when the rest of the island is getting hit. Went snorkling here twice because it was so good. The beach is beautiful with lots of shade and picnic tables. Just park on the road next to the cemetery (also pretty) and head on over!

This beach is named because it backs to one of the many cemeteries that have prime beach real estate on the island. The reef is a bit of a swim from the shore and on a windy day the water isn't very clear, but the view of the ocean from the beach is beautiful. If you plan to drive to... More

Cemetery Beach is the best site we have found off of 7 mile beach. Great for young kids who want to snorkel but don't want to go in deep water. We saw plenty of fish and an eel all 50 yds off shore.

Smooth water, great shade, lots of fish to see. Just drift along and enjoy the sights! But no facilities, just great snorkling.

If u go to cemetery beach pls do not walk through the cemetary! It is clearly marked. Use the fenced path to the right of the cemetary. Pls respect the locals and the place that is sacred. Do not leave trash on the beaches or in the water. Recycling is available at Kirk's Grocery where the road splits.
