Went snorkeling during our stay at Marriott. The waters were a little crazy because Irma was brewing... The reef is huge and we did spot a lot of fish. My husband saw a nurse shark.

Nice public beach that is free of charge. Restrooms on site and a shady park is located near the entry to the beach. Great place to spend an afternoon.
