Great beach for hanging out and for snorkeling. We parked in the parking lot across the street for the dive shop and @Eat. Not sure if we were supposed to, but we only stayed a couple of hours and picked up a few things at the dive shop. Beach itself was ok. Sand was soft enough and there were a... More

If you want a great spot to snorkel, this beach is for you. Make sure to bring water shoes since there are rocky spots and sea urchins not too far off of shore. Make sure to go across the street to eat@canebay for some delicious food and drinks!

My wife and I hit up a lot of places to snorkel but this has to be one of the best. Just make sure to enter and exit in the middle of the beach. Our first time we did not know that and had a hard time getting out and back in due to the shallow water and all the... More

be sure to bring water shoes as there are a lot of sea urchins at this beach, the views are really impressive and the beach had good shade

We were staying near Cane Bay and went on our first day. Unfortunately the water was a bit rough then--with no protective barrier reef, the waves can get high and there were actually surfers out. It's got a few fun little bars and restaurants, so no big deal that the water was clouded up, still a nice day on a... More

We visited this beach during a cruise stop and were less than impressed. The sand was ordinary brown and the beach was so slanted, it made it difficult to set up your chair. We walked down out of the crowded area and it was a little better. But the entry into the water was rocky at most points. This was... More

We went to Cane Bay twice during our trip. We love snorkeling and really enjoyed Cane Bay. We went out to the wall area and found the clear blue waters refreshing.

Saw so many great reviews of this beach, so we were really looking forward to visiting it, but it wasn't what we were hoping for. Good for snorkeling if you know where to go. Went out the wrong way and it got shallow again, so my foot hit a sea urchin. No fun! One of the guys we were with... More

I really enjoyed this beach for a couple of reasons. 1st off out of all the islands that we went to on our cruise this is the only one that offered the best snorkeling right off the beach. Not the best snorkeling I've ever done but still, we at least had something to look at. There are tons of brain... More
