After trying to search out good places to snorkel my husband and I came across this gem. The parking space is limited, yet, there were few people at the beach so parking didn't become an issue. In all, there were probably less than 10 people at the whole beach. The beach itself isn't super nice, but the real gem is in the water.
Drop your towel, get on your snorkel gear, and walk into the water. Within 10 feet of the shore, we spotted multiple, multi-colored fish. The water was calm and with few people at the beach, the water is all yours. We payed for a snorkel/lunch tour and saw five times more fish, plants, etc. at the public beach then through the tour. And it's all FREE!
