This bay is very beautiful. The shallow waters are generally calm and peaceful but when the wind is up try any wind sport you like. Many condos on the bay actually have a view to the west so sunsets are spectacular.

Saw occasional ray, and fun to watch fish/ take pictures. My muscles like the ions in the ocean, so great stretching, and safe.

Over many years, a slow outward migration of sand has been taking place. There are many conjectures as to why, but human intervention seems to have reversed the tide (so to speak). A new man-made stone cage breakwater now extends across the bay in front of Omni Hotel. The shallow water inside the breakwater is sandy, very warm, and wave-free.... More

Love this place, more needs to be done to save the sand on the beach....but still one of my favs. A great place to walk for exercise or to stroll to watch sunrise and sunset.

The temporary barriers constructed to help hold what little sand that's left seem to be working..but they really destroy the beauty of the bay..it needed to be done as part of the overall Fatima Bay beach restoration project..so it will be nice when they are removed..but it's difficult to know when that may happen..right now it is hard to just...

As an owner of a condo on the Bay, I'm partial to the place naturally. Fatima Bay is gorgeous beach flanked by two beautiful marinas and the most gorgeaus shade of gin blue. It's just the right size. Surrounded with seveal condos and a couple of beautiful resorts, it's a must visit village for famiies and couples to vacation. Plenty... More

Watch the Corona Commercial and that defines the experience. Snorkling is wonderful and can be enjoyed by the entire family without renting a boat. It is also safe.

We were there Jan 12 to the 19th, 2013 and enjoyed it very much. Yes, the beach is not what it used to be, but it is still wonderful!!! Very quiet, not too busy. They were working very hard to make it better while we were there. Always raking and moving sand to improve what is there. They even removed... More
