Daniel's Head Beach Park


This peninsula juts out to the west of Somerset Village and comprises two beautiful beaches, one of which forms a half-moon around a tranquil lagoon. Glass-bottom kayaks ($30/hour), stand-up paddleboards ($30/hour) and snorkeling equipment ($15/hour) are available for rent from beachside vendors. The offshore Vixen shipwreck is a snorkeling hot spot.
