We are looking for a hotel that has easy access to snorkling, preferably within walking distance as we really enjoy it. Are there any hotels in Jamaica that fit into that description?

Riu Club Negril, Bloody Bay

Private little bay area, with the sister hotel Riu Palce down the beach about

hmmm 2 miles- only 2 hotels in this bay area stretch.

Walk right in the water towards the roped off areas ,look for the grassy coral areas.

You will see yellow brain coral, multi colored fish, red and yellow starfish, octupus,lobsters,sea slugs and sting ray.The water is calm to float and snorkle plus at one end of the beach is a fish sanctury.

Bloody Bay sounds nice but just to give you another option, Grand Palladium has pretty good snorkeling in Sunset Cove - they offer a snorkel tour as an activity on Mon, Wed and Fri.

Sunset Beach Resort in MoBay. Very nice rock piles (man made) and some living coral reefs right at the resort. We found it be very nice for resort snorkeling.

I am heading to Secrets St James. I have read many people stating that the snorkeling infront of this resort and the other half of the resort Wild Orchid have fanatsic snorkeling. I have seen a video on Youtube of someone snorkeling right infront of the resort. There are lots of starfish and even the occasional stingray.

Happy Travels
