Each of the beaches in Red Hook differs from the next.  In some areas you'll find fine-grain sand that is soft to walk on and leads out into the clear waters making it acceptable to swim without some sort of water shoe.  Other beaches are rocky and better for people participating in watersports or beach combing.  

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You will find an abundance of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, if some members of your party enjoy this relaxing pastime. For a detailed review of one particular beach click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

If you are hoping to snorkel, a place worth considering is Secret Harbor. Palm trees line the shores, providing shade for guests at this beautiful beach at Secret Harbor.

The shallow bay waters are perfect for swimming and snorkeling, while the white, maintained sand makes the beach perfect for sunbathing.
