Cinnamon Bay is one of my favorite beaches! I love the white sand, crystal clear blue water and simply Gorgeous View! Our teens enjoy paddle boarding and snorkeling around the Cay!

Large, picturesque northshore beach. Great sand, colorful crystal-clear water, lots of spots to hang out in shade under sea grapes. Fun snorkeling around the cay. On-site snack bar / grill and beach bar. Decent restroom facilities. Trunk Bay? Yes, but also Cinnamon Bay. Unlike Trunk, Cinnamon doesn't get the huge crowds or the scene-sters who just want to drink beer... More

By far my favorite place on earth... it forever holds a piece of my heart. I found it to be pretty quiet, fish swim right up to you, shallow beautifully clear water. It's a MUST see!

Again~ get there early or go late. This beach is beautiful but can become crowded. Our kids had a great sea turtle sighting while we were there.

There are not enough words to describe this beach, blue crystal clear water, the view is spectacular, calm, white sand beach. It is just so relaxing beach and the best is that there a bathroom and shower facilities so you can take the salt water off, short ride on a taxi, but be ready with the camera because you will...

Relaxing clear blue water, rent kayaks, SUPs, chairs, anything you need. A bit windy but the breeze felt good. Snack shack and restaurant and bathrooms. Great for families. We loved it.

This is a very nice beach with crystal clear waters and a wide and long white sand beach. There is a restaurant and water sports equipment rentals. You can even get sailing lessons or lessons to windsurf.

We rented a kayak at Cinnamon Bay and visited Whistling Cay. When we got back we decided to see what Cinnamon Cay had to offer. It's just a little bit offshore from the beach. Surprisingly it is every bit as good a snorkel as Whistling Cay, and far easier to get to. We saw great pelicans fishing very near us,... More

Excellent snorkeling on the far right along the rocks. Saw lots of fish and a nurse shark. Keep inside the buoys! There are lots of shady nooks and the far right is less populated as it is a little distance down the beach. Did not venture out to the cay but saw lots of snorkelers out there too.
