We have traveled the Caribbean extensively and we can tell you that this is the best snorkeling destination we have ever experienced. We visited here nearly every day of our 7 night stay in Provo. You can easily spend the entire day. Snorkeling for a few hours and then grabbing a drink and/or meal from the Somewhere Cafe and Lounge. The beach is open to the public and easy to access via the walkway. Just look for the "Beach Access" signs. Snorkeling is absolutely free for everyone! Its never crowded so you still feel like your on a secluded exotic island, which you are! Just put your belongings down on the beach and head into the warm ocean. If you don't have your own snorkel gear there is a small shop that rents all kids of equipment. I have my own snorkel gear but rented a life jacket. There are washroom facilities as well. As soon as you get into the water you will see the fish. Literally in knee high water, the fun begins. One afternoon a barracuda drew a crowd when it came into knee high water where a group of small children were playing. Everyone got out of the water and watched it swim almost up to the shoreline. Snorkeling here couldn't be easier! You basically swim in a big "loop" that goes around the protected reef. They have a rope and buoys to keep people out of the protected area in order to preserve this national treasure. You just swim along following the rope, without actually swimming over and into the protected reef. There is always a staff member keeping watch out for people not following the rules. We seen a few instances when they had to sound the blow horn and call the people out of the "off limits" area. Its great that they are preserving this beautiful reef. This is the ideal location for beginners looking to gain confidence snorkeling. This calm, clear, warm water is the perfect spot to teach children. They will have so much fun practicing using the equipment and the large variety of marine life will keep them encouraged. Coral Gardens Resort is located here on this part of the beach. Wow, what an ideal location! Directly on the most beautiful beach in the world and steps away from the reef! We actually toured the property and the inside of one of the oceanfront condos. Would be a dream come true to own a condo beachfront condo here!
