    It is a short (and hot) hike to the beach, but well worth it for the snorkeling offshore here. The rocks you can see from the beach offer some great snorkeling - beware though, it's a bit of a swim. (...  more »

    After a ten minute rocky uneven hike a pristine beach welcomes you with all its glory. A bit further away on the south east tip of the island mesns you will not run into a crowd!  more »
