We were staying at the Shoys so we were able to walk to the beach. If you are a good swimmer you could swim to some decent snorkeling. Nothing like Buck Island though. What is nice is that it is secluded and quiet. If you...More

Tell the guard that you are going to the beach and they will allow you through. The parking area, just outside the private villa, is well marked and the trail to the beach is to the left of the villa gates. It's a pretty afternoon...More
