This is a great place to hang out for families. The areas inside the reef are good for snorkeling (though this trip they were dirty because of the recent rains. Still the kids love the playground here.

Laid back beach behind the Hilton Garden Inn. Great for snorkeling.. We saw puffer fish, tropical varieties, and an eel! It's also whale season and we saw a few breach in the distance!

Great swimming area for kids, since it is protected by a man-made rock wall. Also has a playground and walking trail.

Went here with my family to go diving but the weather did not allow for that so instead we explored with our almost two year old. There is a great little man-made Bay Area that wards off the waves and makes an excellent swimming spot...More

This is a beautiful park and beach. There are breakers which create 2 areas for calm waters. One is perfect for small kids, shallow and calm and the other area is a little deeper and larger and we felt very safe swimming and snorkling here....More
