Beautiful, well cared-for white sand beach with restaurants and bars doting the perimeter. Security was always present, although I don't believe I would leave my belongings unattended. Awesome snorkeling right from the shore.

Crystal clear water, colorful fish and amazing reefs. Booked a private tour from the west bay beach and it was the most amazing thing we saw all week. Our guide named all the fish and reef formations. Very fun and informative.

This is a wonderful beach, with miles of sandy shore! You can have fish nibble the dead skin off your toes, or you can snorkel right to the reef. It's busy with water taxis and people trying to get you on a tour or to...More

We stayed at Banarama resort for 7 days. We arranged the shuttle through them. 25 to 30.00 each way for our family of 4. If you are going there for the day from a cruise expect the same cab fare. I believe Banarama charges... More
