We went to the big beach and had a great time playing in the water. The biggest issue was the hour long wait for lunch at the only restaurant.

Amazing experience at Magens Bay. Besides the bar at the beach, it was an opportunity for a causal snorkeler to see the millions of bait fish swim into the bay. Everything that feasts on those little ones were there too ... tarpon, octopus, sting ray, other large fish ... it was amazing. And was very overcast. Gave us a break from the heat. Read Less

We went to Sapphire Beach, which is actually at a resort. There were plenty of chairs, snorkel equipment, etc. The beach is pretty rocky, so it was hard to get in and out of the water. Only there for about 1.5 hours, so very short time. There was confusion heading back, as our bus was late, but no one knew where he was, so we were worried that we had missed our ride. Stopped at an overlook on the way back, so got some great pictures. Read Less

St Johns beach - very beautiful beach.
Sail Date: May 2019
St Johns beach - very beautiful beach. Traveling over there was a lil too long and the guide explanations on how to snorkel way too long. We only had 1:30 to 2 hours on the beach. But still a beautiful spot!

Concessionaire for chairs and umbrellas does not help you move equipment to your selected spot or install umbrella. Only with a "tip" of US$5 will the "gentlemen" near the chairs help. Manager defends this practice with the reason that this is a public beach. SO WHAT? I am pretty certain that the authority who issues the permit does not care about the fine details of how she chooses to run her business. Further, she knows nothing about defusing a situation. She knows only how to add fuel to the fire. By definition, a tip is not compulsory. Could have been informed at time of rental that set up is DYI. Lots of old folks who could barely climb stairs, much less haul chairs and umbrella over resistant hot sand to selected place. Read Less

Everything was over priced. Beach staff was not honest with food and beverage prices. Down the beach we found better food and free wifi which they did not make us aware of.

The beach was not clean, nor swimmer friendly. We understand the excursion company could only do what they could do due to the storm of 2017. All of the beaches we were used to were not inhabitable yet.
