Grootpan Bay

The nearly sand-free beach is actually covered in small, smooth pebbles and stones and sits just south of a large salt pond. It is easy to get to by parking in the small area at the east end. Armed with a beach chair, towel, cooler and some snorkel gear, Grootpan is one of the most private beaches on the island. The snorkeling near the beach and along both sides of the bay is excellent and should be experienced.
