The water was clear and beautiful. Lots of snorkeling right from the beach. We brought our own equipment. The sand was nice and there was plenty of free chairs to pick from.

This beach is absolutely beautiful. The sand is soft and the beach is very clean. The water is a gorgeous light blue and warm. All along the beach there is plenty of beach chairs and lounges also sun umbrellas. Plenty of places to get a bite to eat or an ice cold bevy. Including a Margaritaville. The snorkelling is awesome,... More

Short walk from the ship to this beach. You can get drinks and food here. Although it gets crowded, you can still find beach chair easily.
