After a ten minute rocky uneven hike a pristine beach welcomes you with all its glory. A bit further away on the south east tip of the island mesns you will not run into a crowd!

You have to hike a bit to get out here and the snorkeling is a little more exposed. We ventured quite a ways out and getting in was a bit tiring. I thought it was really cool. I would recommend for experienced snorkelers only.

During our visit this time we passed several locals totting large buckets of salt (gathered from the far side of the bay). Some times we pass donkeys as well. We usually swim out along the left shore to the end then cross over by a small rock formation to the right side and swim back. Saw several nurse sharks, stingrays, seaworms, sea spiders, squid, lots of variety of fish and an eel. Not crowded at all.

We were staying in Coral Bay and this beach was less than 1/2 a mile from us. We checked it out and the beach was beautiful with crystal clear water. We went back and snorkeled and there were sea turtles, angel fish, jelly fish and many others. It was a quiet uncrowded beach. We loved it.
