Strap on those flippers: the calm, sheltered waters of the bay make this beach a great place to snorkel.

View from above is terrific and overall the beach has a romantic vibe. The colors of the ocean are vibrant and changing - it makes for a great picture taking spot. Beach is small, so wouldn't spend a lot of time there. But worth visiting.

This beach is small semi private, a bit rocky although I saw people snorkeling. Def worth coming too. Be careful on the rocks walking in water they are slippery we watched every person slip on them.

There were no umbrellas for rent when we were there in June, however you could find some shade by the rocks. Public bus runs from the boatyard to church bay beach. If you ask bus drivers, they will generally let you off... More
