Chocolate Hole Afternoon

 

The sand and coral rubble beach is mostly used by people from the neighborhood or by boaters who have their boats moored here.

It looks as if the long delayed Pond Bay Club will become the next part of the Chocolate Hole cultural landscape. The land behind the beach has been totally cleared and actual construction should begin soon.

Getting There
From the Texaco Station go 1.1 miles east on route 104. Turn right on Chocolate Hole East Road. Drive to the end of the black top road and park by the beach.

Snorkeling
Look for conch, turtles, rays and juvenile fish in the thick seagrass bed lying just offshore of the beach. Near the point on the left (east) side of the bay lies a fringing reef where you can observe larger fish as well some corals and other invertebrates.
