Trees line the thin stretch of sand that makes up Conference Bay beach, providing shade but not a lot of space for enjoying the sand. The waters are warm and clear but sometimes choppy and there's no snorkeling opportunities here.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.
