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.

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

I have been to several amazing beaches in my life and I will say that West Bay ranks amongst the top 3. Thailand and Playa del Carmen are right up there.

“Clear warm water, soft sand, and lots of fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a great swimming and snorkeling beach. You can see fish within 3 feet of the beach and more if you go out a bit further. The waves are tiny, making this a great beach for children. There are a number of locals selling things on the beach, but if you say no firmly, they leave you alone.

“Beaches just don't get any better than this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is one of the top rated beaches in the Caribbean, and it's easy to see why. The sand is soft, clean, and sparkling. The water is clear as glass with those wonderful Caribbean green and blue hues. It's a great place for people watching or just soaking in the warm water. And there is plenty to do: swim, snorkel, sun, paddle boarding, etc. Just enough hawkers to give you a tropical feel, not to overwhelm you. Good food and drinks available all along the beach. Great snorkeling at one end, and a quiet place to sun yourself and read at the other end.

“Life is great on West Bay Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
