The former campground buildings were destroyed by the hurricane. As of now, there are no facilities. But the beach is beautiful, the reef is coming back, and the snorkeling is great. Bring your own food and drink.

This beach is very windy. The water tends to be a little choppy compared to other beaches. There are many seagulls and birds that swoop down and take your food right out of your hands! Snorkeling was good, but not great. We saw several sting...More

One of my favorite beaches. Due to last years huricaines it doesn't have the lush trees that were there but still an awesome place to hang out. No amenities as of right now.
