    Great beach to hangout, snorkel or just play in the water. Sand is soft and the water is clear. One of my favourite beaches to visit when I’m on the island. The black rock is used for jumping in the ocean. It’s a pretty cool spot to take it all in.

    This is a beautiful beach with pretty calm waves but it's full of tourists because of the resort directly in front of the beach. There is a snorkel gear rental place on the beach and lots of great things to see if you have snorkel gear. You can also swim out pretty far which is nice.

    Not sure why this rock is a big draw, but of course it is New Year's Eve so it's probably very different every other week. Body to body, few fish. Folks were having fun, particularly those jumping off the cliff, but I was hoping for good snorkeling.

    Wide open area with nice sandy stretch. There were some waves and guys on some boards, but there was also some nice snorkeling close to the rocks. I was able to see some fishes of different colors and a turtle. I would recommend visiting.

    Sandy, family friendly beach right in front of the Sheraton 🌊 A great place for the family or to just chill swimming. You can do some snorkeling and there are often turtles floating around 🐢 (but coral/fish are more on the other side of Black Rock). You can also swim out to the rocks and jump off - a low and high level!
