We stayed at the hotel but it might be possible to get a drink and occupy a beach chair. No access to shore without walking thru front of hotel and right at front desk, thru right door and hallway. Down the stairs and out to pool and ocean side access. Current is typical on main civilized side of island, but current keeps the dead floating algae away which can pile up to a rotting stinking mess on the other side of island and main land. We both day and night snorkeled it. Also was fun to feed fish bread. Due to current, we swam up current and drifted back. A ladder is exit point. Waves were too strong to try climbing out on rocks. Depth is roughly 15ft against the wall entry point dropping off to probably 20-30 ft of featureless sand. All the fish are against the wall, starfish, sea urchins, corals, tiny tropical fish. Swimming around 400 yards towards town yields a shallower sandy spot according to another guest I talked to. Rental snorkeling gear is available at the dive shop which closes around 5pm. Happy hour 2 for one drinks is 5-6pm. There is a bar in the pool with underwater stools. Also a fresh water shower to wash off.. Due to current it's not much of scuba diving and more of a snorkeling spot. Also keep in mind this has rocky reef like shoreline full of life, which is different than shallow sandy shoreline that exists farther down towards town.
