Governors beach is right in the middle of 7 mile beach. Has a couple of picnic tables that can be shared for lunch or dinner.

End of the day swim after all the tourists got back on the boats. Still on Seven Mile Beach but tend to be away from the hotel and boat crowd. On holidays this is where many locals come

This place is crowded in the day--even in November-- and the parking is limited. It is excellent in the later afternoon and offers great sunsets.

Plenty of beach, crystal clear water! You can bring your own umbrella, coolers, tents and beach gear.

Beautiful beach next to the Westin. We snorkeled and hung out for a short time because we didn't have chairs or an umbrella so it go too hot and sunny to stay, but if you have those, it's a great place to spend some time....More

Seven Mile Beach area doesn’t have many great snorkeling sites with an easy swim from shore - with this spot as one of the exceptions. We headed out to where we saw other snorkelers and found a patch reef in good condition with lots of...More
