Clients looking to enjoy some sand between their toes without having to endure the hordes of tourists that flood Florida’s more popular beaches will appreciate the recommendation. The clear and clean ocean is perfect for water activities such as surfing, sailing, scuba diving and snorkelling. The newly restored Bathtub Reef Beach is a snorkeller’s paradise – perfect for beginners, as well as those more experienced. This particular destination is made special by its offshore reef system, which is home to more than 500 unique marine creatures.
