With a name like treasure beach you can probably imagine that some of the most picturesque stretches of sand exist here. What you may not know is that the snorkeling here is gorgeous as well.
Six miles of dark sandy shores give way to four public beaches that are great for snorkeling. Here, there are colorful fish, smooth rocks, sand bars, and a coral reef to protect it all. The reef not only helps to keep the waters calm, but it is yet another site that snorkelers will enjoy exploring.
Knowing all of this, it is still important to remember to check the daily conditions before you head out. Sometimes the current is a little stronger than others, and on these days you'll want to make arrangements for other activities until conditions are calm again.
