Take full advantage of the amenities and beach activities like snorkeling at Las Palmas Beach Club, a magnificent complex of shops and restaurants on idyllic Pirate Bay.
It's a short drive from the pier to Las Palmas Beach Club, a collection of colorful shops and restaurants located right on the beach at Pirate Bay. Being casual and carefree is encouraged at Las Palmas Beach Club, where many of the staff members join the fun by dressing as pirates.
Upon arrival, you'll be welcomed with a glass of refreshing punch and then start your guided snorkeling adventure right from the beach. The snorkeling along the reef and lagoon here is superb, and it's all the more interesting when you follow your guide, who'll hand-feed the fish as you watch.
After approximately 30-minutes of snorkeling, you'll return to shore where you are free to spend the time reading in the shade of a coconut palm, or simply stroll along the shore, looking out over the crystalline waters. You may even see the Black Pearl, a replica of a 17th-century pirate ship that often anchors here.
Still, not every activity is beach related and you can also choose to meander through the shops looking for casual clothing or wooden handicrafts. Cameos are one of the more unusual items, as local artisans hand-carve each piece from double-layered conch shells using a steel burin to cut the designs. They are truly one-of-a-kind souvenirs.
