Although it is big for wind surfing the bay is also relaxing to watch. Decent bars on the shore as well.

Lac Bay is located on the SE side of the island. It has some resorts but is probably best known for its windsurfing. Give it a look if you have a chance.

The beach by the airport has really good snorkelling. It is easy to enter the water because it is a sand beach. There is also a food truck right there in the car park where they have great food.
