Beautiful snorkeling in this area. At Smith's Reef, you have to watch the boats because they are NOT watching you! But it is beautiful and teeming with sea life. At Coral Gardens, we saw several sea turtles, a small stingray and several parrot fish. At...More

Definitely check out Coral Gardens if you're looking for the best snorkeling - we saw a sting ray, sea turtles, lobsters, lionfish, and plenty of other colorful but unidentified creatures. It was the best snorkeling by far, even compared to the boat trip we'd taken...More

you cant see this natural wonder and doubt God's hand in creating this paradise on earth. It is a dream location to walk and melt away stress by losing yourself in surroundings

One of our favourites on the island and if you're here, definitely stop by for a lovely day at the beach. Bring your own beach chairs if you can.
