Snorkeling was just average but the beach was lovely and no one was there. I would definitely recommend for a quieter experience.

it depends on the day...the kind of experience you get at Salomon. You might just be the only person there for 8 hours. You might also be crammed in with 30 other sunseekers on a beach that's barely 100 yards long. Snorkeling is good here,...More

Similar beach to Honeymoon, separated by rocks and a Park Ranger house. Must hike or boat to this beach. Often referred to as the 'nude' beach but nudity is prohibited by law. Good snorkeling to the far left or right. A bit of a step...More

When we were there, people did come to beach from a different trail and they said it was off the road. You will have to ask a local. Sorry I'm not much help!
