Crystal clear water and white sandy beach. Snorkeling is excellent and you can scuba dive from the beach. Also has several very Good bars and restaurants.

Nice beach with the best snorkeling on shore. Be gentle and don't step on the corals. The restaurants are price so look for the mall and get good food at the deli calledMangiamo, it is not cheap but good!

Its a touristy kind of place. If you're desperate for wifi and really having to get back to reality (WHY?) you can visit the coffee shop with a pirate sign on it. They have wifi. We were walking around a bit before snorkeling at Half Moon bay - The women running the coffeehouse were really nice, coffee excellent. Its a... More

Perfect caribbean beach, unfortunately many tourists when cruise ships arrive. Awesome snorkeling at the point at West Bay Beach. Swim out from the beach, reef starts close to the beach, drops from 5m to deep water (20m+). I spent a lot of time snorkeling in this area and saw hawksbill turtles, very big snappers, eagle rays and massive schools of... More

I have been snorkeling in many locations around the world and this is one of the best. My family and I lived in Hawaii for 4 years and snorkeled just about every location we could find. West Bay is just as good. I have seen man size groupers, monster lobsters, barracudas, puffers, tangs, parrot fish and much much more. One... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bananarama Resort in the West End. We usually stay at all inclusives but we thought we would give this a try. We loved the Resort itself. The staff was super friendly and the cottages were very tropical in looks. Because it was not an ai resort, we picked up food from the local... More

The West Bay area is one of the greatest beaches I've ever visited. Clean, clear & warm water. Perfect for snorkelling on the beautiful reef. The locals are friendly & if you treat them with respect and kindness, they'll treat you like family. I love West Bay.

Possibly the best snorkeling....EVER! If you stay to the left, near the huge rock wall on the beach, go out about 50 ft or so, you'll find yourself in a school of thousands of Chubs and Sergeant Majors. Keep going out, and you'll see just about anything there is to see. I even saw an octopus! Be careful if you... More

The soft white sand and clear blue water are terrific but I always think I should be the only one there. ;) The upside to all the overwhelming tourism is that there are several good restaurants and you can always find something to--people offering massages, fishing and sailing trips, glass-bottom boat rides, etc--or something to buy. Probably a great place... More
