Great Beach

Not rocky, crystal blue waters. Great place to visit but not much shady trees, so an umbrella is recommended.

Beautiful beach with water sport activities available. There wasn't a large crowd when we went, so it felt like we almost had the beach to ourselves. The guy at the watersport rental place recommended an area for snorkeling and he was right! A sea turtle swam right up to us and swam around us for a few minutes. It was... More

This is where you would go if you want to rent jet skis or do other beach activities. Probably not a good beach for Snorkeling because of the Jet skis.

My husband and I visited this beach on a Tuesday and arrived around 10AM. The beach was surprisingly empty and the traffic did not pick up until after noon. Even with the extra traffic after lunch, the beach was still relatively quiet. This beach had more soft sand and less reefs and rocks to contend with. The waves were also... More

This is not a large beach but is probably the best beach on the island. A nice stretch of sand with crystalline waters free of rocks. Plenty of parking and some trees to get some shade. There is a very good sports bar as well as a place to rent water jets, paddle boats and other water sports items.

Wonderful beach and calm ocean. Plenty of "sea glass" to hunt for. I believe chairs and umbrellas are available to rent along with jet skies.
