Owner description: 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.

“Life is great on West Bay Beach”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

It was great to walk the beach in the morning and see people raking up the eel grass in front of the businesses and kiosks. You will be approached by lots of beach vendors, but if you just say no thank you and smile, they will leave you alone. We never had an issue with anyone being too aggressive.

There's lot's of restaurants long the beach to choose from and if you go out to the end of the beach near Infinity Bay, you can wade out and snorkel out to the barrier wall and see some amazing sea life!

“Beach Lover”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

West Bay Beach was awesome. The water clarity was unlike any water I've seen before. You didn't need to leave the beach for amazing snorkling. We saw all kinds of fish including a sea turtle. The sand was the softest sand I've ever walked on. All in all I'd say one of the best beaches I've ever been to.

“Nice beach for snorkeling”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Nice snorkeling in Mandy's Eel Garden just off the beach, although there is much better snorkeling at some of the dive sites that are accessible by boat. There is no way to avoid all the beach vendors and women hawking massage services, which can get a little annoying.

“Beautiful......”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Beautiful beach, with out of this world snorkeling. Some of the vendors can be a PITA (the lady hawking massages every 10 minutes comes to mind), but the beach itself is spectacular.

“Beautiful Beach but very developed”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The sand and water are gorgeous - top shelf tropical beach. The price you pay is that how dominated it is by large hotels and condo operations. If you got the very far end by the limestone cliffs it is quieter and there is good snorkelling
