our day was a bit choppy, lots of water up the snorkel, and the sealife was fairly limited near the reef. It takes some effort to find the coral, as it's about 150 m out.

The beach is beautiful on its own and nicely remote for SMB. Nice trees for shade too. We weren't expecting the snorkeling to be so beautiful. Swim out a bit and you could spend hours browsing beautiful coral.

We had a good snorkel outing at this location with very clear water. Only a few people on the beach and easy to get in and out of the water. Colorful fish

Just off the cemetery on Seven Mile Beach (that is actually only 5 miles long) hence the name of the reef. Great diving and snorkeling. Well worth hooking up with a boat operator like Reef Divers to enjoy the view.

Nice little public beach. It’s a good day lace to stop for 2-3 hours and do a little snorkeling. The raised cemetery graves behind the beach are very reminiscent of New Orleans. One day some surveyors came out and marked where a sea turtle had...More

We were recommended this beach for the snorkelling which was indeed excellent. It is a beautiful beach which we really enjoyed. Our only gripe was that on the day we visited, my three children and I all experienced these tiny little stings when we were...More

We stopped here to check out the snorkeling. Not very crowded, beautiful white sand. You had to swim out pretty far before you saw fish. We did see nice fish. Two fish kept bothering us, think they wanted fed. One bit my husbands finger guess...More

Bus is cheap, a few dollars..best to convert some cash to CI money. US dollar x.80= 80 cents per dollar.
