Snorkeling--we saw sea turtles, stingrays, parrot fish, many other fish. Beautiful sunsets. We were there 4th of July week and could always find lounge chairs.

perfection -- shady trees to sit under and still be right there at the water, velvet sand, great bar just behind the trees, amazing snorkeling and view of the ever changing water color.
