Owner description: West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

“Nice beach but very busy and commercialized with a lot of street vendors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This beach is beautiful and nice to visit but I definitely would not want to stay at one of the many resorts located on the beach. There are street vendors, bars and restaurants lining the entire beach which is fun, but there would be little or no quiet time to enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately the weather was not great so we did not get to experience the snorkeling, but we did hear that the snorkeling was great.

“BEST BEACH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This has to be one of the best beach areas I have ever seen. There are a fair amount of hotels/ resorts on the beach with numerous restaurants and watering holes. There are also scuba diving / para sailing / and glass bottom boats along this stretch of beach. Very nice place to relax and spend some time. Another must see on my list!
