Clear, calm water is good for snorkeling. Worth the ride in. Soft sands. A lot of people tend to go here with families. Sand fleas (or flies as the locals say) tend to come out at Bug Thirty (at dusk). They're brutal. Tie up your belongings. Mongoose are around and may grab your things. Otherwise, a very pretty spot.

The snorkeling is second to nine. Kind of hard to get to via vehicle. We visited via boat and it is amazing. Yawzi Point and the Tektite Snorkel are two of the best snorkels in the world.

Little Lameshur Bay is an out of the way beach where one must travel an unpaved winding and bumpy road. It is away from tourist and has limited places for parking your Jeep. Fun snorkeling is here with calm waters. There are no vendors here so bring your own food, beverages, snorkeling gear. You'll see some fish, squid, turtles, eels,... More

The drive to Lameshur is an adventure and the beach is mostly rocks but the snorkeling is great. Saw turtles, barracuda, other types of fish and lots of coral. Remote but worth the trip.

Beautiful hidden beach. Hardly any crowds. Great snorkeling. White sandy beach. If you want a cobblestone beach Great Lameshur is right next door. Can't wait to go back!

Tricky to get to, but worth the drive. The water was calm and beautiful. Some locals told us we should go since it hadn't rained in so long and the roads would be ok. If you do go, you might have this beautiful beach all to yourself.

We drove over a fairly rough road to Litlle Lameshur Bay because we had read good reviews of the snorkeling there. We swam primarily along the rocks on the left side of the bay (when facing the water) and went almost to the point where the water got very deep and a bit rough. My brother found an octopus, and...

This was one of my favorites. The drive to get there was an absolute adventure...it was like off roading. Very serene area. The water was so clear and beautiful. Quiet and just a great place to enjoy the scenery.

We loved this beach! The road is rough but perfect for the off road driving enthusiast. Once you get to the beach it is paradise. The water is calm with great snorkeling, swimming and sunning. We also took the trail up to reef bay, petroglyphs, reef bay and Genti Bay. One of our favorite spots! Completely worth the drive out!... More
