went here on a catamaran cruise and it looked like a zoo. Nothing beautiful about it as it is in a commercial area. Probably good if you are 18-25 and looking to get loaded.

In shallow water, divers are rewarded with about seven wrecks of various sizes. Each one has a different make-up of fish and coral. It would be beautiful except for the catamarans that tear up the moorings and seem to have no regard for the safety...More

Lovely sand and clear warm water. The eastern end is normally very quiet but if you want more life ( food, drinks, umbrellas, loungers etc) just walk down towards Bridgetown. There are plenty of places to park. You can even snorkel out a short way...More
