Rainbow Bay Beach is a fabulous place for the family. There are covered picnic tables and kayaks for everyone's use. The back is shallow enough for small children, but deepens up on either side for good snorkeling.

We spent and afternoon here swimming and sitting under a palapa. It is a gorgeous place. Great place to bring kids to swim. Shallow and calm.

Good for swimming, snorkeling or SUP. Usually protected form the wind. Easy to find......After the Rainbow Inn sign look for Rainbow Drive on the left going north. Go right at the T intersection and the beach parking is on the left.
