Owner description: A short swim from Leinster Bay, you'll find some of the best snorkeling on this small island, with its plethora of marine life.

Fun one mile hike.. some warn to have plenty of water and hiking shoes, etc.. But really, it is not that big of a deal. The beach right before Water Lemon is just so/so. We did not actually snorkel Water lemon as we had our 7 year old daughter with us and due to it being a strong current snorkel and hearing about 2 people dying there last year. But we took a locals advice and snorkeled right where the trail begins. We saw some awesome sea life! There is a nurse shark that hangs out here and is spotted daily that we saw. Way safer and we were all alone where as Water Lemon was jammed packed with snorkelers.

Not an easy place to get to but well worth the walk back there. It is a secluded place to snorkel. Small beach. One trip we saw huge starfish in this area.

Beautiful corals & many fish, sea stars & rays but can have a strong current. Wear fins & take your time!
