West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

We were fortunate enough to stay for a week on West Bay Beach, a gorgeous white sand beache with spectacular off the beach snorkeling and reef. We saw so many different kinds of reef fish and coral as well as a stingray, lobster and squid. West Bay Beach is by far better than West End and Half Moon Bay.

Thisis a good beach if you are into activities such as diving, snorkelling, para gliding, kayaking, etc. The beach is not very big and is crowded when there is a cruise boat in town. The reaf doesn't come to the beach so you have to take a dive boat out if you want to snorkel. Note that the beach is... More

We took a private boat from the beach to go snorkeling. The beach is beautiful but very crowded. The snorkeling was so-so.

We just returned from a week in West Bay. It's a beautiful beach with all the watersport amenities. You can parasail, jetski, fish, scuba and snorkel...an of course there are several beach front bars. You can also take a short inexpensive water taxi ride to West End for a little trendier nightlife. The water was clear and we were amazed... More

Many local stores, restaurants and Bars and friendly people. Great place to relax and shop and eat. The beachs are no charge with clean sand and crystal clear water. Unfortuatly MANY tour groups come here and it does get a little crowed but they don't stay long.

Beach is getting cleaned daily , clear water , a lot of fish , nice reef to snorkel, bunch of restaurants and bars right on the beach. Cruise ship tourists do get little annoying , but... More

We went to west bay and west end beach and both beach were nice, however still not what all the hype was about. It's great for snorkeling though, it's also costly there. Everything is expensive, and nothing much to do on the island. It's a little above average beach to me.
