I snorkeled this site on Nov 20, 09 and I was amazed at the diversity of marine life. This beach caters to every type of individual except divers. The kiddy beach is 1-1/2 feet at its deepest and if you snorkel on the right hand side of the little island, viola, it is sweet! 0-10 feet on average. If you are daring enough go beyond the surfline and enjoy the schools of fish and the turtles that await you. BTW, Please do not touch the beautiful and delicate corals.

So far so good, the beach seems like it has receded since I was there last but it just comes to show you that even the ocean is alive. I snorkeled in Nov 21, 09 and the water and currents were very reasonable. It may seem scary at first, but do yourself a favor and go beyond the surfline. Turtles and schools of fish await you. If you stay within the calm zone all you will see are unhappy and dying corals because people touch these delicate creatures after applying sunscreen.
