Amenities and Ambiance

While there are many rocks lining Marley Beach, there is still plenty of soft sand that is perfect for laying in while soaking of the hot sun rays. The crystal blue water that leads out to the Atlantic is also beautiful to look at, while the transition of colors makers for a wonderful photo opportunity, as do the sunrises every morning.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. Fortunately, the water here is clear enough for snorkeling, so grab some equipment if you are looking to do some underwater exploration.
