The water was shallow, clear, and warm, and the kids could not get enough. Great clear snorkeling at black rock, and the waves were very small and good for kids.

There pavilions with restrooms at the beach park by the Westin villas resort. There is a board walk that runs for a couple of miles along the beach. Pick a spot And go swim. Have a great time

Definitely road construction so expect delays. The far north end of beach under beach refurbishment as well. Just take your time and expect delays.
