We stayed at the hotel which is 20 min walk from here (Les Meridien). Its very safe and easy snorkeling for inexperienced snorkelers, with no dangers from currents.... Plenty of fish & coral to see....

Unfortunately, this is a testament to the adage "you can never go back." We first visited the Isle of Pines about 8 years ago, and snorkelling in the Natural Acquarium is one of our most treasured memories. We've raved for years about the giant, fluorescent-rimmed...More

Just a short walk from Le Meridien is the natural pool... Highlighted as a spot for good snorkeling which it was for a pool, but if your really after amazing marine life then you’ll have to look elsewhere sadly as this beautifully clear turquoise pool...More

We were on a cruise ship for the day, so we booked a day pass at Le Meridien. The snorkeling in the lagoon was non-existent, but very good for kids and non-swimmers, since it is so shallow. We decided to walk to the Piscine Naturelle,...More

You will never see such beautiful place elsewhere. However, tourists destroy this eden. They walk on the corals and some of them feed the fishes!!!!!! But, if you do not care about the stupidity of humans, you will have the best place to see a...More

One of the (hands down) most beautiful beaches we've ever encountered. You feel as if you've discovered a paradise - and you have. Gorgeous snorkeling and powder white sand. Perfection.
