Overview

West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

Beautiful beaches and water. Great for diving and snorkeling. Vendors do get very annoying but you learn to ignore them.

There is no water ferry. You have to get a taxi. Negotiate the fare - they charge per vehicle - so pack it up. They can run from $20 to $40 round trip. There is a water taxi between West End and West Bay.
