It's no wonder this is protected land, the beach is beautiful and a wonderful place to enjoy some time in the sand. The reef just off the beach is a good place to go snorkeling but the outer reefs have many more fish and more to see.

Good white beach overall. I would go to long bay instead. Snorkeling was 'ok' at best. Lots of activities and people on this side.

Thirteen miles of undeveloped, protected beach, part of an effort to preserve the natural beauty of the islands. Unspoiled beach in either direction, whats not to love?
