If you go there on high tide it's an awesome place to snorkel. A lot of fish and corals with crystal clear water. Nice beach for to tan, but the snorkeling is the thing there!

The most easily accessible and family friendly beach. Quite pretty with lots of food shacks but nothing special. definitely the most underwhelming beach of the island. Busy and touristy. 2k fee to park (which is cheap for tourist attraction) (HINT: walk to the far left...More

We were there some days ago and there were many many boats. It was ok for snorkeling (we went there on our own) but the waves were high at that time. Not our best snorkeling experience I have to admit.

By boat (did not try land entry) this is a spectacular excursion. Clarity second to none and great variety of fish. Fresh, chilly water comes in from deep ocean trenches.

Crystal bay has a nice beach but it's not really special. It a nice area to have a dip in the water, but beware; it's really busy !! Many tourists end their day here so expect big crowds.

You better like this beach coz that's the only one accesible on the island. I was fooled by bloggers making their living of selling a dream and came here. I spent two days diving on undrivable roads looking to lie done on sand. Its impossible....More
