Beside the crystalline waters of Davis Bay, this beautiful white sand beach lined with palm trees is a great spot for swimming, bodysurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Davis Bay at the renaissance resort was terrible Rocky, no sand and very agressive seas. Not recommend for snorkling. Hpefully in the coming years they can restore the beach at least.

We loved our stay! The best beach on the island!! They do have great snorkeling and scuba diving, with equipment rentals available. It is located in the Rain Forest portion of the island and is very secluded.

Davis Bay, which is the beach of the Renaissance Carambola resort, is accessed by going through the resort (the guards are not picky about letting you drive into the hotel lot) or by a path right before the resort gates. Great beach and good snorkeling/diving.
