Amenities

Cane Bay is a great spot for sunbathing, walking, snorkeling, having a cool drink at a beach bar or just hanging out. The long white sand beach is lined with many trees which provide good shade. Cane Bay is renowned as an excellent snorkeling and scuba diving site. About 1/4 mile offshore, the depth plunges to 1,000 feet, so divers can merely swim out and dive "the wall", as it is called. This beach is easily accessed from the main road. A dive shop, kayak shop, restaurant & bars are located in walking distance from the beach. Volleyball net is available on the left side of the beach. The water is usually calm but there can be strong currents.

Good Snorkeling

Nice beach with sandy shoreline. Good for swimming as the water area is also largely sandy. Also has good snorkeling. There were various levels of rocks with not much in the line of coral gardens but a good bit of fish everywhere – almost like swimming in a big fish tank! Water was nice, calm and clear. The tree line offered some natural shade, under the trees. The beach is just off the main road; parking is along the road so not so scenic when looking from the water back at the beach but very nice looking out toward the water. There were a couple restaurants, one on the beach and one just across the road. Chairs were available for rent so was snorkel gear.
