A beach scene with snorkeling is Hull Bay. Access to the beach is limited to vehicles and pedestrians. Cars can utilize a informal car park area directly before the beachfront off of a local road which connects to Route 37.
Another good option for snorkelers is Lindquist Beach. The beach is accessible via a small road off of Route 38. As it is an unmaintained dirt road, cars should have four wheel drive.
Bolongo Bay: Bolong Bay Beach is privately owned by the Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, which accounts for the well-manicured sand and the plethora of beach chairs and umbrellas. Palm trees provide shade and ambiance, while the beautiful turquoise waters invite guests to swim, snorkel, or indulge in watersports.
