Reefs at either end of this sandy beach make for a varied snorkeling trip and you can walk in off the beach which makes it easy for beginners and families. Also a swimming beach, swimmers cloud up the middle, sandy section, but there isn’t as much to see there anyway, most of the marine life lives and feeds further out and on the side reefs. Northern end has greater variety of fish, including trigger fish, parrot fish, butterfly fish, chub, perch, jacks and scorpion fish. It’s popularity as a swimming and sunbathing beach make it quite busy so arrive early.
