Cinnamon Bay offers a long gently sloping snow white beach to stick your toes in, or go for a leisurely stroll. The crystal clear waters provide many delights for even a novice snorkeler. Turtles and fish of all sizes and colors can be seen here. Near the Cinnamon Bay Cay there is an underwater fish holding pen probably made by the Taino or their ancestors. There is even a submerged historic village and a sunken plane from 1940s to see. Spend a couple of hours trying to find them. You can find clues for where to look in the Cinnamon Bay Heritage Center and Archaeology Lab.
You will find a restaurant, snack bar, small commissary, restrooms and showers at Cinnamon as well as windsurfer and kayak rentals.
