BeachExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The Undersea Garden has been a protected marine sanctuary for years and home to a vibrant population of fish and invertebrates. It's a short walk from the center of Avalon.
  • Kelp beds make this an especially beautiful place to snorkel for all abilities and ages. Both snorkeling gear and guided tours are available.
  • No diving is allowed at Lovers Cove. Look for the island's famous fish—the brightly colored garibaldi.
