This little gem of a beach is GREAT for snorkeling! We saw LOTS of different tropical fish & had the beach to ourselves (it was off-season). If you go between Nov & early-April, you'll get to enjoy the company of CHICKENS walking on the beach!...More

My wife and I visited this beach twice. The first time it was too windy to enjoy, and I wanted to go snorkeling, but the water outside the 'enclosure' was a bit too choppy for my liking. So we sat on the deck and enjoyed...More

A small beach, but excellent scenery an arm's length away. Very quiet and out of the way. Well protected from the wind and a cafe/bar next door.

We visited Tobacco Bay last week. Clear calm waters, a bit chilly still this time of year. Our daughters enjoyed swimming and seeing fish around the rocks while we enjoyed a Dark & Stormy at the bar. Friendly service. Just needs more changing rooms.
