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 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

This is a quiet beach located in front of a Cemetery. Free street parking. No facilities, so bring your own everything. Snorkeling was just "OK"

Another okay beach -- we were told that the snorkeling was amazing at Cemetery Beach, but we never found it -- perhaps we didn't swim in the right direction....

Enjoyed our 2 trips here to snorkel. The rock outcropping right off shore was truly unique and was more impressive than the low reef. Sunset was phenomenal. Several groups of folks gathered around sunset for beer parties, too much trash for my tastes.

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