Great Guana Cay is home to seven miles of picturesque beaches on the Atlantic side that are always sparsely populated, but the condition of the water depends greatly on the weather.  On the Caribbean side, the beaches will often have a few more bodies, however they are vastly less crowded than those you'll find in popular resort areas, and the waters are calm and perfect for snorkeling.
