We went snorkeling off the beach. We enjoyed the snorkel as we saw a number of beautiful fish and corals. The beach is nice but have visited nicer Sol Cayo Guillermo has a nicer beach.

I have visited with my family twice this beautiful beach, which I consider one of the best of Cub and probably the whole Caribbean, white sands, calm and transparent water, you can swim safely even with child. This beach is something that you cannot miss!

THe hotel beach is minimal. Not really a beach per se, just access to the water to swim and use the boats. Pillar beach is beautiful and people who go there do so as a destination.
