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.

This is a perfect golden sand beach. But the cruise ships have discovered it and it was very crowded the day we visited. There was decent snorkeling at the far west end of the beach near the rocks well marked with buoys and signs.

Hundreds of beautiful and colorful fish just steps away from the beach. You don't actually need a boat to get there since the reef is right there. White sandy beach, clear and calm water perfect for swimming and snorkel.

Cool vibe beach town, a little bit of a tourist trap but nice and clean with lots of restaurants to choose from. I would avoid when cruise ships are in the harbor. You can find the schedule in the local Paper.

Lots of activity, music, sun, and a wonderful sandy beach. Vendors up and down the beach, but no one is overly aggressive. Great spot to spend the day.

This beach is beautiful and has the best place for snorkeling! We rented a beach house about a 10 minute drive from this beach. This beach has lots of activities and restaurants and small hotels. Great place for a day trip!
