We toured the mangrove forest from a 4x4 off-roading vehicle that we booked as a shore excursion on our cruise ship. The scenery was nice, but not one of our best shore excursions.

Lac Bay is great for windsurfing and paddle boarding. The beach is really nice. The Beach Hut is our favourite spot for lunch or a few cold ones after a few hours on the water.

Lac bay is a great place to relax and watch the windsurfers come past. The water is very shallow and its possible to walk very far away from the beach in the water.

It is a nice place to see flamingos. You can also see huge piles of queen conch shells. There is a mangrove forest that is well worth seeing via kayak.

Yes, it's busier than it used to be with all the wind surfers and cruise ship passengers. However, it's still a beautiful bay, and we love sitting on the beach and looking out over the amazingly blue water.

An amazing place to visit for the day or week! Water sorts and great beaches galore. The sea water is shallow for a long way out so it is great for young families.

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.
