Snorkel with the turtles!

This is a clean well kept beach. There are lots of activities such as snorkeling, paddle boarding, and scuba. If you are lucky, you will be able to snorkel with the sea turtles!

This beach is not one that we frequent at all. It is overrated at best. If you are not staying in a property on the beach parking is ridiculous. The restaurants on the beach are overpriced and none of them are that good, they are more geared to take your money and get you out the door.

This beach was amazing, the views were awesome, the sand was comfortable (when it wasn't hot), the waves were fun, once you got out 10-15 feet the sand was still soft on your feet unlike some other beaches I've been too. At the end of the beach by Black Rock they have some great snorkeling, the amount and variety of... More
