Just next door to West Martello is beautiful Rest Beach, a white sandy strip of heaven with beautiful palms and a pier that takes you out into the water for some snorkeling. It’s a perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon, with plenty of accommodations to keep you comfortable for the afternoon, wether you are stretch out under a palm with a good book or flipping around in the surf spying on reef fish (like me!)
I absolutely loved exploring the area, which is shallow enough to offer good visibility, but deep enough that you can use fins without getting in your own way.
The cormorants were completely unfazed by plethora of snorkelers swimming just underneath their seaside perch.
Here a short compilation of my snorkeling that I took with my iPhone 12 Pro Max – just a small representation of the multitude of fish that I spotted!
