Hike and Snorkeling at Honeymoon Beach

The patch reef on the west side of the beach, between Honeymoon and Salomon beach, offers some very good snorkeling. Much of the reef is in fairly shallow water – making it an excellent choice to see fish, corals, turtles and rays up close! Because this area gets a fair amount of boat traffic, stay close to the reef and keep and eye out for boaters.
