step off this small secluded beach into waters where sea turtles graze - fantastic! further down the beach they say is a bat cave. Some nice shade from trees if you want to stay the day. Only 5 parking places however.

It's quiet, not a lot of people, no restaurants or sun lounger. But lots of natural shade and great snorkeling.

I love Cemetery Beach. It is so peaceful and beautiful. The reef is pretty far out, and to the right when you are standing on the beach. Just be careful, because there are giant barracudas in the water. I saw tons of fish, I snorkel a lot, but this was the first time I really was freaked out. Just stay... More

Nice snorkeling and a quiet beach spot away from 7-mile beach. It was worth the trip if you have a rental car. It is a bit of a swim to the reef / coral but we did enjoy it. After we headed towards the turtle farm and had lunch at Macabuca so it made a nice afternoon.

Very pretty & quiet. Gentle sea however quickly becomes deep. My 8 year old & i wore life jackets. Great to relax. Some shaded areas.

If you want to enjoy a quiet day, come to Cemetery Beach. I was shocked to find how spacious the area was and how secluded we felt when we arrived. There is one picnic table and always seems to be a chicken running around. The water color was unreal and even if other people were there, there was so much... More

We visited Cemetery Beach during our last cruise (6-26-16), we were looking for a quiet secluded beach and CB somewhat delivered. We were off the ship early and arrived around 9:15, we were the only ones there till about noon, which we loved! The sand is thick and the water is clear! We did a bit of snorkeling but we... More

This stop allows for ample snorkeling. This was our second visit, and May had more fish than July. But it still was good snorkeling and another person saw a group of turtles. There is plenty of shade and sun-so you can tan or nap under the trees. Don't feed the chicken!!

This was my favorite place on the island so far. The main reef is about 150 yards out from shore which is a bit of a swim, but definitely doable and totally worth it (recommend bringing noodles or snorkeling vests for younger children/not strong swimmers). When you reach the coral heads they come within 3 feet of the surface of... More

We spent 2 days here - obviously we liked it the first time, so we had to go back. Slightly disappointed in the snorkeling - it wasn't as good as I had hoped, but it wasn't horrible.... just quite a ways out. Water was beautiful - and there were some sea turtle sightings when we were there. No facilities -... More
