Fodor's Expert Review Coki Beach

East End Beach

Funky beach huts selling local foods such as pates (fried turnovers with a spicy ground-beef filling), quaint vendor kiosks, and a brigade of hair braiders and taxi men make this beach overlooking picturesque Thatch Cay feel like a carnival. But this is the best place on the island to snorkel and scuba dive. Fish—including grunts, snappers, and wrasses—are like an effervescent cloud you can wave your hand through. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; snorkeling.
