OMG - I can't believe no more Bluemoon! I had my wedding reception there 12 years ago and have gone every year since. Very sad.
Does anyone know if they are going to lease another location?

Snorkeling is great at Secret Harbour

Sapphire for Beginners

Do you feel Sapphire is a good snorkeling spot for beginners? Good swimmers, but newbie snorklers?

Sapphire is great for beginners. The reef is VERY close to the waters edge.

If you feel a little uncomfortable, rent a vest or use a noodle.

Secret Harbor was the very first place I snorkeled. I couldn't imagine any place being calmer. Correct me if I am wrong but the Southern beaches tend to be sheltered from the rough water that comes in from the north.
