West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

You have to pay to get onto the beach, there are 6 packages ranging from $10 to $60 each $10 gets you a sun lounger, access to the restroom and the beach/sea. As we got there it started raining so we went snorkelling another $30 each. It was supposed to be for an hour but was more like 45 minutes,... More

Great snorkeling is available less than 75 yards off the beach in many spots - an easy swim out in shallow water to the coral reefs and an abundance of colorful tropical fish. The beach... More

That is the case for the days/hours that the cruise ships are visiting, but it isn't always that way. The water is very pretty, warm and there are ample opportunities for activities like jet skis, paddleboarding, kayaking, or to get a... More

Stayed one afternoon after zip-lining and enjoyed the crystal clear water and clean beach. The beach provided a safe atmosphere for kids and plenty of water sports available for rental. Good snorkelling and scuba diving right off the beach. Great local cuisine and drinks are readily available as is local crafts. The beach vendors could get a bit annoying, however,... More

If you like crowded, loud beaches this is for you. Only walked thru this beach looking for a grocery store. Wasn't one. Will never go back.

The beach is beautiful and the water temperature perfect. The beach is well maintained. We enjoyed both jet skis and banana boat rides. Make sure you negotiate the price.

My family had a wonderful vacation, staying at a place on West Bay beach. THe sand is wonderful and the sea is a beautiful turquoise color. To top it all off, the sunsets are the best in the world!
