Top 25 Best Island Beaches for Swimming and Snorkeling (#25 to #21)

Take a Snorkl and fins and slip into the waters of these amazing island beaches, voted by Condé Nast Traveler readers as the best in the world for snorkeling and swimming.

 

#25.  Mauritius

A great place to first discover the underwater treasures of this independent island nation east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean is Blue Bay Marine Park. Visibility is near-perfect and it's great for beginners, as you can snorkel straight from the beach. The park is home to angelfish, damselfish, parrotfish, and clownfish—among other colorful exotics. Note: Don't forget to look up once in a while, as you'll spot airplanes landing and taking off from the architecturally impressive Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.

#24. Hawaii - Big Island

Nearly twice the size of all the other Hawaiian islands combined, the snorkeling on Big Island is fantastic, especially at Honaunau Bay, also known as The City of Refuge, with an historic backdrop to boot. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park has smooth lava rock flats to help you ease effortlessly from shore to sea into year-round crystal-clear water, and you'll find healthy coral gardens teeming with tropical fish, moray eels, and even turtles in shallow depths to the right. Spinner dolphins frequent deeper waters to the left.

# 23. Ilha Grande, Brazil

Ilha Grande, almost exactly midway between Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, is heaven on earth—somewhat untouched, still, with deeply green jungle, turquoise water, and a totally laid-back vibe. Snorkeling here might include exploring colonial-era ship-wrecks, but take a dip in the Lagoa Azul first (think Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon) with delicious water temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s providing the perfect habitat for seahorses.

#22. Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

The Baths on Virgin Gorda are a must for any visitor to the island—although it's best to get there early in the morning or the late afternoon to dodge overcrowding by cruise ship tours. Gigantic granite boulders form a series of natural tidal pools filled with a myriad of grottoes and tunnels to explore. The further from the shore you go, the better the coral and sea life is.

#21. Palau

Palau, a nation of 250 islands in the western Pacific, is home to dozens of unusual seawater marine lakes connected to the ocean by tunnels and channels. Only one, Jellyfish Lake on Eil Malk, can be visited, and is filled with millions of—you guessed it—jellyfish. Floating through swarms of these gelatinous beings is definitely an out-of-body experience, but don't worry—their non-poisonous stings can hardly be felt.

Size chart

So you're wondering what size you might be? No worries, we got you ;)

Check out our sizing chart below.  

SNORKELING MASKS

If you find yourself right on the fence between measurements then opt for the larger size. So for example if you are 5 feet 7 inches tall go for the L/XL mask. The main difference between sizes is the space allotted for the nose to chin area so the large the size the larger the space. 

IMPORTANT: The Snorkl for both adults and kids is meant to be utilized by strong and confident swimmers. Do not use the Snorkl if you or the person receiving it are not able to swim or just learning how.

Oh and we are SUPER friendly family oriented company so we know all about how hard it can be to get the right size for everyone. If you happen to pick out the wrong size or color just let us know at any time and our happiness manager will be glad to get that fixed for you.
