One day a week, weather permitting, we take everyone by dive boat to the deserted beach area between West End and West Bay, for a picnic lunch and snorkeling, between the morning dives and the afternoon dive on the way back from the beach.
Behind the resort is another body of water, that's our lagoon. We do not have a sand beach, and therefore don't have much problem with sand flies. The lagoon is lovely, has a long dock, with a platform that has one side shaded with a hammock and the other side with a couple of lounge chairs for sunbathing. The water is clear and shallow and the snorkeling is excellent there, as the lagoon is protected from the sea by the reef at the entrance. There are steps at the dock to allow easy access to the water. Also snorkelers/sunbathers are allowed to go on the dive boats, and we have constructed the tops of the dive boats with ladders and toe rails to allow easy access for sunbathing. For snorkelers on the vacation package of 5 nights or more, there is no charge for using our snorkel gear.
