Snorkeling Salomon / Honeymoon Bay

Between the bays' beautiful sandy beaches is a rocky headland that extends into the water. Basketball-sized brain corals, lettuce leaf, Elkhorn, knobby mustard hill and even some pillar corals are found in the western side of Honeymoon Bay atop an older reef platform. Fish populations are abundant and comprehensive. Look closely to observe the locally rare black and white geometric encrusting tunicates. The water is clear and 10 feet or less in depth. Further seaward in deeper water are the scattered star corals and rubble that offer protection for fish. Coral heads fringe the shoreline from Salomon westward toward Cruz Bay and eastward from Honeymoon to Caneel Bay.

Note: There is no boat exclusion zone at Honeymoon. Be cautious of boats and dinghies. This beach is a popular destination for hiking tours and charter boats from mid-morning to mid-afternoon.
