We snorkeled this spot with Renee, our snorkeling guide. She took us to the far left of the Plaza Resort (if you are facing the water) where we could enter the water by a stairway. We snorkeled off to the left, first over the deep water above the wall and then in shallower water. We saw a lot of interesting fish, especially in the shallows. We even saw a Cherub fish, although it was pretty far down. The current was manageable, and I am not a strong swimmer. I would definitely go again.

This diving/snorkeling site is at the Plaza resort. The access to the reef is very easy and there are lots of fish and corals in the shallow water so it's great for snorkeling. Diving deeper over the drop, there is a nice reef with lots of fish. We were lucky to see an octopus chasing a moray eel while snorkeling.
