The beach at Leinster Bay can only be reached by hiking from Annaberg or by boat. Although most snorkelers make their way to the colorful reef surrounding Waterlemon Cay, there are things to see right off the beach. The sea floor is mainly seagrass and sand. The following photos show were taken just off the beach in the late afternoon yesterday.
