Oct.11-17,07. This report refers to snorkeling only (no diving this trip). We have snorkeled the reef north of Little Beach for many years and this visit was as great as ever. We feel this is the best snorkeling on the island and in our top 3 for the state. Every day this visit we found amazing things on one particular coral head just 2 minutes kick from the sandy beach to the right (north). The first day a Snowflake Moray Eel; 2nd day a Devil Scorpionfish; 3rd day Zebra & Snowflake Moray Eels; 4th day a Whitemouth Moray Eel; 5th day Zebra, Snowflake & Whitemouth Moray Eels! The 5th day was so much better because we went in the morning instead of the afternoon when the conditions were calmer and the tide was high. Also of note: Octopus, Spotted Eagle Ray swimming north, almost every butterflyfish in the book, 6 honu and more. This beach is our favorite place to watch the sunset; take a flashlight so you don't have to rush back over the rocks to Big Beach. The drum festival every Sunday afternoon is very entertaining. No facilities. Take drinking water.
