“hike and dip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Secluded but not isolated. Its a great place on the path but not the beaten one! I visit there every year. It is always a great spot to stop after Hiking Rams Head. Perfect for kids and has shade.

“Quite a hike for a such a small beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

The hike to this beach is a longer one but easier than a lot on the island. There isn't a lot of room for lounging If you want a good chance at seeing sea turtles this is a good place. We saw our first ever sea turtle here.

“Hike and Snorkel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful bay for snorkeling. Waterlemon bay is a short hike along the rocky shore. A fun way to access, but be prepared for the walk. Also there are other trails and ruins in the area so you can turn it into a half day excursion.

“Isolated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Takes about 20-30 min to walk to the beach. Water shoes would be good as it isn't a sandy bottom has lots of seagrass. No concessions so bring it all with you and no bathrooms. There was a 5 foot shark swimming around and my son took underwater pictures.
