A must go, this place had some of the best snorkeling on the island, just be aware of where you step as there is a sea urchin forest not far off shore.

Loved Calvin's pig roast and the R&B Connection band on the beach! Chairs are available to rent $7. "Eat @ Cane Bay" is right across the street. They close early on Sundays though. They have THE BEST rum cake with caramel sauce that I've EVER had!!!!! Beautiful sunsets to be had here too!!!!

This is an average beach at best. Went there with my wife, we usually go to beaches to tan, swim an do some light snorkeling. The sand was brownish and slightly rough, there was a lot of sharp rocks and uneven slopes which made swimming less than enjoyable. The current was strong and there was quite an undertow which make... More

Very quaint area not far from the Carambola where we were staying. Some very awesome restaurants, a beautiful beach, and great horsebackriding.

We went just off season and there were less than a dozen people there. Very limited for facilities in the off season but a place did open with food and beverages, Water was calm and there is a wooden carousel which is marked by a buoy for divers. Was told the water drops to 13,000 feet. Snorkeling was good with... More

Sam and I did 11 dives with the group at Cane bay. They were superb! Rick, Patrick, Nick, Nick, Chris and Michelle are top notch. They even attended our wedding on the beach in front of the shop. They were elated and couldn't do enough to make our honeymoon and wedding exceptionally special. The dives were really superb. The reef... More

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
