A 15-minute drive from Freeport, this beach's spectacular swim-to reef is its best asset, with marine life that includes various rays, sea turtles, and barracudas. Paradise Cove is a small native-owned resort that will bus you out if you call ahead. The beach is short but wide with scrubby vegetation and swaying palm trees. Snorkel equipment and kayaks are available to rent, and refreshments flow at the Red Bar. There is a $3/person fee just to hang at the beach. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling.
