This was our first snorkeling stop and it really was so much better than the rest. The reef is Pretty high and we saw lots of different things. I would skip the outer reef in favor of coming to blue pearl bay.

This is located on Hayman Island. It's a rugged coral beach so you need shoes/sandals/thongs. Gorgeous clear water though.
