Good Snorkeling

Nice long sandy shoreline, neat for taking a stroll. There are a couple small 'pools' along the shore where the hard sandstone ledge that is right by the shore forms a sandy small area with water. The 'pools' are neat for sitting in and relaxing. The sandstone ledge runs basically the whole length of the beach except for a small area just at the beginning of the beach where you can swim and enter the water. There is good snorkeling starting there and running parallel to shore along the sandstone ledge. Saw various juvenile fish on top of the ledge and larger fish under it. Good beach for hanging out on and for snorkeling, the water is clear and calm but because of the ledge doesn't make it great for swimming though you can swim.
