The west side of San Pedro Island is one of the biggest and safest shallow water lagoon, with crystal clear water in the Caribbean. Small tight launches in town. More open north of town. Sandy beaches. Sandy beach and islands on the west side of the island. It is about 6 km2 of shallow water, wind is steady and consistent from November till July.

Perfect for beginners / intermediate and flat water freestylers.
