    Phenomenal snorkeling and great beach, once you're in. Only enter in calm and sunny weather, make sure to find the same for leaving. In the channel, it’s 3,20 to 3,60 m on sand, but you need to carefully slalom around many coral heads. Around the hotel jetty and beyond, it‘s sand, around 4 meters, good holding. The hotel might tell anchoring is forbidden due to natural reserve; we couldn't find any evidence of that on the respective pages of the BVI government. It's not listed there.
