Strap on those flippers: the calm, sheltered waters of the bay make this beach a great place to snorkel.

Very beautiful but small beach area. The water was amazing with all of the reefs so close by the beach!

We didn't bring our snorkel equipment but saw a couple of locals bring theirs. Lovely beach - not too crowded and we loved scooping up the sand in the water and finding sea glass.

Nice quiet little beach. Climb on the rocks and explore. Nice variety of fish along the rocks. Unbelievable beauty, my teens didn't want to leave

You need to bring your own gear. This is a private beach walking distance (about one mile) from the Fairmont Southampton Hotel. We snorkeled there and I saw a squid, barracuda, and many other beautiful parrot fish.

It was kind of dirty when I got there. Lots of sea weed and found hundreds of Portuguese man o’ war, which is a very dangerous animal kind of like a jellyfish lying on the shore. So it is not very safe in my opinion...More

Church Bay is a lovely beach known for fabulous snorkeling. It's located on the bus line. There are no services (bathrooms, food). Unfortunately, the day we visited the water was a bit choppy and difficult to swim, let alone snorkel.

Loved it here! Yes, it is a small beach but the surf was rugged and the ocean was filled with puffers, parrot fish, jellyfish, butterfly and clown fish, ticklish, wrasse and more. You have to be a good swimmer to snorkel here. I would not...More

Beautiful hidden gem with great snorkeling. We were the only people there other than 2 others. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Much better then Horseshoe. Definitely recommend a visit and bring snorkel gear!

I paid a round trip bus fare of $9.00 and I believe the taxi is double that price. Also, if you are offered the "Special Trip" bus do so because the other bus does local stops and take a little longer to get there. You will... More
