Snorkeling off the beaches of the Gran Playa Turquesa

Does anyone know first hand if there is snorkeling right off the beach area of the Gran Playa Turquesa without having to go on an excursion?

I would like to know too.

I have been very lucky at other resorts I have been to.

I put breakfast cereal in my pockets and lots of fish right off the shore.

CMH, When are your holidays?

We leave March 4.

Read these two reviews on this site. I think they explain the situation:

Hi Clearbay - haven't definitely booked at this point - still researching which area has the best snorkeling.
