Reggae Beach at Cockleshell Beach it's a nice beach, somewhat crowded. No real snorkeling there. Bar offers a varied food menu with fair prices. Chairs and umbrellas are available. Transportation costs about $7 per person each way.

If you want to tour , the Brimstone Fortress was interesting. We were there during the offseason so not everything was open. Carambola is the most beautiful beach on the island . It does cost to use it for the day.
