Great place to swim and snorkel. Have been there several times now and it is great. As far as safety it is about like anywhere in the island world. Enjoy yourself all day long and towards evening pack up and head out. There are no real problems and you have worry warts everywhere but don't let that spoil the fun of this beach!! It is great and everyone is there to have a good time. You may smell some Mary Jane floating around in the air from time to time but safety has never been an issue for my wife and I. Also I have watched cruise ship people come and go throughout the day & they leave with smiles on their face... from the great snorkeling! Plenty of fish to see, ells & have seen octopus too. Have fun!
