Great snorkeling, quiet beach, great for families or couples that want some quiet. The swimming area is great, then you can snorkel out if you go further towards the buoy's. Lots of shade, but plenty of spots to lay out and get a tan!

Tis is a nice public beach tucked away with few visitors. I liked the fact that it had ample shade trees. Snorkeling was "OK", nothing spectacular. Yes, you must walk thru a cemetery to get to the beach.

Great little place to snorkel right off the shore, saw some pretty fish and corals. Some boat and jet ski traffic to be aware of, but it wasn't bad.

The beach is so-so compared to others, and the snorkeling was unremarkable. You do see coral and fish, but there is not a "lot" nor is there great variety. Access can be along the beach or street parking can be found close by.

We were staying at a place on Seven Mile Beach not far from Cemetery Beach, so we walked about 10 minutes to go check it out. It is undoubtedly much nicer and less crowded than the beaches closer to Georgetown and the big resorts, but...More

Excellent snorkeling here! You will have about an 80 yard swim to get to the best coral/fish/wildlife, but grab a swim noodle or life jacket and make it happen. Beautiful!

The beach was nice to explore. Soft clean sand which is great for walking and relaxing. Didn’t see anything interesting while snorkeling.

Next to spotts beach and rum point, all around the best snorkeling and lovely beach. West bay is less busy than the typical 7 mile beach areas closer to Georgetown. Free parking...

our day was a bit choppy, lots of water up the snorkel, and the sealife was fairly limited near the reef. It takes some effort to find the coral, as it's about 150 m out.

The beach is beautiful on its own and nicely remote for SMB. Nice trees for shade too. We weren't expecting the snorkeling to be so beautiful. Swim out a bit and you could spend hours browsing beautiful coral.

Bus is cheap, a few dollars..best to convert some cash to CI money. US dollar x.80= 80 cents per dollar.
