This tops all beaches I have seen. It is clean, walkable and lots of chairs to sit on. The sand is almost white.

This is a beach region you've got to experience with your own eyes. Period! We snorkeled at Bight Reef and we saw turtles and tons of fish.

There is a central area that can be snorkeled around with views of various tropical fish and coral. We always bring an underwater camera for video and photos.

The best way to enjoy this "park" is underwater. Take the glass bottomed submarine for 45 minutes and explore the reefs.

The coral reef is right off shore. It is surrounded by ropes to prevent swimmers from damaging the coral, but you can snorkel around it. Plenty of fish.
