Tobacco Bay is popular and may seem a bit crowded, but for a good reason. It is a super-protected bay, not too deep and great for snorkeling. Big waves won’t bother snorkelers here, but you might just see some of the biggest parrotfish you can imagine.
Lots of cruise ship passengers head to Tobacco during the summer cruise season, but so do the locals–it’s that good here.
There’s a small bar and snack bar, bathrooms, too. If you are heading to St. George’s or the east end of the island at all, make sure to stop by for a dip and a snorkel at Tobacco Bay.
