This is such a lovely beach for both swimming and snorkelling. My kids didn't want to leave! They saw so many beautiful fish and really enjoyed the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The black sand is lush and soft. You will not be disappointed!

We visited this beach on a drizzly day. The resort is very welcoming to outside guests and we had no problem getting in. Note that they will try to charge $33 US for chairs and an umbrella. Instead, just grab a drink at the bar...More
