We tried to go snorkeling at St. Martins while at port in St. Thomas. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time. So as a last minute gamble, we went to Magen's Bay — a beautiful beach, but not a snorkeling destination. The clear, sandy water around the beach was completely pointless for snorkeling; hardly any fish, and nothing interesting to see. But we decided to try going by some rocks by the far edge of the beach; and as we began to look around, we discoved a small, wonderland away from all the people at the beach: reef squid everywhere, sunning themselves near the surface. A wide variety of beautiful fish, and even a sea turtle. It ended up being the most fun we had snorkeling during our time in the Caribbean. And because nobody was there to snorkel, we had it all to ourselves.
