Evaluation

*Average:    4.58
Coral is building up on the man-made breakwater making it an excellent snorkeling site. We were staying at the Superclubs Breezes, formerly the Princess Resort, and could just walk in at their beach. Snorkeling inside the break-water is great with very calm conditions, all types of parrotfish, tangs, squirrelfish, puffers, flounders, even a flying gurnard. Reef silversides and snooks abound all along close to the shore to the delight of beginner snorkelers and non-snorkelers. You can swim through passes in the breakwater and snorkel the outside edge where there are wonderful elkhorn, seagrass, brain, and pipe coral. I saw lots of trumpetfish, French angels, cuttlefish, and even an octopus. The surf and current can be strong on the outside. We were there in January and saw a school of dolphins pass near the dive shop.
