Nice beach, small and crowded, but everyone is on vaca so no problem.... Lounge chairs have a canopy that you can use when the sun gets too hot.... Thought that $8 for a Corona was a little high though!More

Well worth a day and night visit. Excellent beach and great snorkelling. Cabana was very well stocked. Live music and great food. Beach is smaller than some but a very friendly atmosphere.

Spectacular views, great snorkeling and friendly staff! We visited Tobacco Bay in the morning, so there were no problems obtaining beach chairs. If you like snorkeling bring some bread to feed the fish, they will swarm you and you'll love it!!

I recommend you visiting tobacco Bay early in the morning between 9 and 10 you only are able to use the far corner of the beach if you are not purchasing a $20 beach chair. So bring a beach mat and definitely a few towels....More
