Came here to snorkel based on user reviews, not disappointed! It's an easy swim out to the reefs, we didn't use fins but they'd be helpful. Gorgeous clear water, coral, and so many kinds of fish of all sizes and colors. We came on a Friday afternoon; there were a few other snorkelers in the water but it was definitely... More

I get nervous snorkeling, but the clarity here is amazing, so much that I actually felt really comfortable and enjoyed snorkeling here.

This is a wonderful out of the way beach with shade trees and great snorkeling. Our only regret is that we didn't pack a lunch but we did walk to Tiki Beach Bar & Grill about 1.5 miles down the beach. We had one of our best days here.

Really shouldn't be saying this out loud.......it's uncrowded and usually peaceful compared to the rest of 7 Mile Beach. Great for sunbathing and snorkeling.

Great beach and a place to snorkel but you'll need to head out 250-500' from shore to get good visibility and reef structure. It's safe though. Coral reef is 10-35' down.

Cemetery Beach is amazing. It's very private and the water is crystal clear and warm. We spent a relaxing afternoon here. My photos pretty much speak for themselves. There are no facilities here, so plan accordingly. We noticed a few people packed picnic lunches. The wild chickens added to the charm.

Cemetery Beach, located...you got it...right behind a cemetery is a beautiful place to spend a day. After our brief visit to HELL, we drove, then walked through the cemetery (be respectful for where you are), onto the beach. Trees are available for shade, while the water is calm and beautiful. Good for swimming and snorkeling, Cemetery Beach is uncrowded, quiet... More

Great sand of course, beautiful spot, easily access once parked. It's a narrow beach but beautiful and we could have walked for miles. Arrived to watch the sunset and walk. I would return to snorkel and bring a picnic lunch and enjoy at one of the two tables under the trees. I think my child was as fascinated with the... More

Pristine beach and water. Nothing but beautiful . You have to swim very far out to get to the coral, but its well worth it. We had snorkeling vests on just in case we needed a break. Would not recommend if you are a non or bad swimmer, it gets deep. Watched a non swimmer attempt it thought we were... More
