If you're on island during a day trip, Stingray City and Seven Miles Beach are not to be missed. Stingray City is not a city, but a shallow patch of water in the Caribbean sea close to the coast where the stingrays have been completely domesticated and love to be hugged.

Seven Miles beach is actually not seven miles long but longer. This stretch of beach is very family-friendly shallow, ideal for snorkeling and swimming or simply strolling on the beach. You'll also find enough restaurants and watersports rentals on Seven Miles beach.

If you're planning to stay for longer than a day and wish to be away from the noise yet still be on Seven Miles beach have a look at The Grandview Condos.

Coolest Caribbean Tip of the Day
You like snorkeling in the Caribbean? So do we! Enjoy, but please try not to touch and take the coral out the water - it's a living organism and could die, and consequently also kill a whole colony of sea life that depend on the coral for food.
