We love this beach! The water is clear and calmer than a lot of areas when the seas are rough. It also has an area blocked off for little kids to play in very very calm water. The snorkeling is very good by the reef!

We were here 5 years ago and snorkeled everyday. Both of my children learned to swim at Fatima Bay (thank you salt water. Thank you ocean) We arrived this time to find the unsightly barriers and a good part of the beach washed away. The...More

This bay is very beautiful. The shallow waters are generally calm and peaceful but when the wind is up try any wind sport you like. Many condos on the bay actually have a view to the west so sunsets are spectacular.

Saw occasional ray, and fun to watch fish/ take pictures. My muscles like the ions in the ocean, so great stretching, and safe.

Over many years, a slow outward migration of sand has been taking place. There are many conjectures as to why, but human intervention seems to have reversed the tide (so to speak). A new man-made stone cage breakwater now extends across the bay in front...More

Love this place, more needs to be done to save the sand on the beach....but still one of my favs. A great place to walk for exercise or to stroll to watch sunrise and sunset.

The temporary barriers constructed to help hold what little sand that's left seem to be working..but they really destroy the beauty of the bay..it needed to be done as part of the overall Fatima Bay beach restoration project..so it will be nice when they are...More

As an owner of a condo on the Bay, I'm partial to the place naturally. Fatima Bay is gorgeous beach flanked by two beautiful marinas and the most gorgeaus shade of gin blue. It's just the right size. Surrounded with seveal condos and a couple...More

Watch the Corona Commercial and that defines the experience. Snorkling is wonderful and can be enjoyed by the entire family without renting a boat. It is also safe.
