“Down by Black Rock the is good snorkelling though very popular spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Saw large turtle, and many fish. Only downside is that it is a very popular crowded area for snorkelling. Nice out by point but can only due when water is calm.

“Busy beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

As far as beaches this is one of the most beautiful around but it can get very crowded. If you have a family with smaller children this is perfect as you can get anything you want around the board walk. For people looking to get away, you can find much more secluded beaches with in a 15-20 minute drive
