“Good wildlife viewing”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

This is a lovely place to spend an hour or two. Good snorkeling right off the beach. Expect to see a lot of wildlife, but don't expect a lot of coral. Worth a trip.

“Beautiful beach with tons to see!”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We visited Three Marys four times between two couples during our week-long vacation. Three of those times were just to explore the beach and once was to snorkel. On the snorkeling day the water was more choppy, so we didn't stay as long as we wanted, but we still saw tons of stuff including a baby nurse shark! On the exploring days we found sand dollars and tons of conch shells, along with seeing some awesome fish right from the shore. The road to the Cays is half the fun and we were able to do it no problem in our rental station wagon and in our electric golf-cart type vehicle. We also enjoyed watching the flamingos in the pond right in front of the road to the Cays, they were close enough that we didn't need binoculars or a zoom lens for pictures!

“Texans visit Three Mary Cays”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Great snorkeling there with a great variety of fish. A ton of coral of all types, too. Best fish are around the first two rock islands. Saw an eel. But go when it is calm as waves can push you around and into the coral.

“Beautiful Beach!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Snorkeling around these 3 Cays is lovely! A little tricky to find - just keep driving down the narrow, rocky roads until you find it - DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!!

“Overrated but pretty”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Can't complain about the roads, knew in advance & had a Jeep, but directions could be clearer (sorry to the man with the secluded house nearby, had no idea that was your driveway :)) Got there, calm out, snorkeled a bit- ehh,, there's better places in North & Middle- just ask a local, they'll send you to the good places...
