Fodor's Review

The clean white sand of Fortune Beach lies between two canal channels, and in the middle sits the Wyndham Viva Fortuna all-inclusive resort, where visitors can purchase day passes to use water-sports equipment and resort facilities. Just steps either way from the resort, however, the beach becomes quiet and secluded and offers an endless expanse both ways for exceptional strolling, easy off-shore snorkeling, and great swimming. The western end backs the Margarita Villa Sand Bar and the private homes along Spanish Main Drive, what locals refer to as "Millionaire Row." The eastern end is home to Banana Bay Restaurant, where at low tide a shallow lagoon forms alongside a drawn-out sandbar, allowing you to walk yards out to sea with cold drink in hand. Amenities: food and drink; parking near east end only (no fee). Best for: solitude; snorkeling; sunrise; swimming; walking.
