West Bay is what many consider the picture-perfect Caribbean destination: white sand, clear, calm waters and full service resorts. The variety of water activities include scuba diving, fishing charters, snorkeling and parasailing. Scuba diving and other outfitters leave directly from the beach so starting your water-based activities is easy and convenient.

This beach has lots of activity and beautiful blue water. A few vendors, but not overwhelming. Lots of restaurants, small beach hotels, and bars. Boats, jet skis, a floating climbing inflatable at one end.

This is a world class beach with a world class reef just a short swim away. The water is crystal clear and the beach is pristine. Some of the best beach snorkeling outside the Cayman Islands.

Get a GoPro - go snorkeling or scuba diving! You won't be sorry. The amount of sea life usually seen in a salt water tank was amazing.
