Arrived on the Carnival Cruise ship. If you are looking for a beach to snorkel, this is one to visit. My kids snorkel around and saw a ton of fish (ages 12 & 18 yrs old). Lots of rocks in the shallow area, but gets...More

Definitely better than cas abou beach. Less rocky. Once you get into the deeper part it is more sand than rocks. Beautiful beach and lots of chairs and space. They also have a bar and restrooms.

It's a pretty crowded beach with a restaurant and a diving school location. Great for snorkeling though. Probably the small artificial reefs built with some hollow reef concrete balls modules improves the nourishment of plants and creatures.

The beach itself is very beautiful, but could be very crowed. It has a restaurant but can be difficult to get a seat in there, specially if there are groups of divers also looking for lunch. There are a few souvenir shops as well. You...More

The beach is nice but can get crowded on weekends/holidays. The restaurant and facilities are great, there is also a local dive shop at the beach and also a photographer/videographer if you like to be filmed while diving. The reef is super for snorkeling &...More

Playa Porto Marie is one of the best beaches that I have ever been to. Admission is $3 per person; renting beach chairs is, I believe, $3.50 per chair. The sand is white and has stones and coral pieces mixed in with it. The water...More

Awesome beach. Went for lunch. Nice restaurant at the end of the beach. You can go strolling on the white sand alongside the huts and jump in the sea or both. Great day!
