    Absolutely, Donna, you don't have to look too far to find both snorkeling and tennis at any number of beachfront resorts! My top pick for this combination would be one of the resorts on Maui's west coast, which fronts some of the continent's best snorkeling. The Grand Wailea (http://bit.ly/zCtuFh) is close to some good beach snorkeling at Ahihi Bay, plus gazes out toward the world-class snorkeling (and diving) in offshore Molokini Crater. The resort can furnish you with gear plus set up excursions to Molokini. Further north up Maui's west coast -- with any number of great snorkeling sites, detailed here: http://bit.ly/y8pvBn -- the Kapalua Resort also offers excellent tennis facilities as well as access to more great snorkeling sites in Honolu'a Bay. The other region I'd look at would be the Caribbean, with too many resorts to mention here. To help with your research, here's a link to an article detailing Away.com's top-ten snorkeling spots: http://bit.ly/j4SOla. You can pretty much rest assured that you'll find a suitable resort in most, if not all, of these recommended places. Off the top of my head, I'd recommend BVI's Rosewood Little Dix Bay, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, or Bonaire's Harbour Village Beach Club.

    Bonaire has plenty of accommodations that offer "house reefs" some of them are resorts and others are vacation rental houses on the water. This site lists all the house reefs on the island http://www.diving-bonaire.com/bonaire-house-reefs.html. I like Den Laman and the Black Durgon.

    Bonaire is pretty much all shore diving and snorkeling, with the sites marked by yellow rocks on the side of the road with the name of the dive site written in black. Most any site is great, but consider renting a kayak or canoe (or just catch the water shuttle) over to Klein Bonaire, the little island off the main island's western coast. It's got great beachfront and sandy entry points. One word of caution: as Bonaire is a coral island, it's best if you have footwear or booties if you're going to dive off the shore on the main island. Entry can be a bit dodgy if you're not wearing something to protect your feet from the corals.
