Hi, what would you like to know about this attraction? How far do you anchor from the Beach? Coming on an MSC cruise this summer. My younger one isn't a fantastic swimmer and we want to go on the boat and hang on the beach.

In our case it was Mullet beach but be advised that the snorkeling site and the beach may change due to conditions.
