Good reminders. Going without the kids next month, we'll head down there and see if it's warm.

Just to clarify, there are barracudas and sharks at Serenity Bay, but people still feel safe going out to swim? If so, I'm fine with it too. Just don't want to be the only jerk out there with Barracuda's circling...

Yes, there is a barracuda that is at Serenity Bay pretty regularly. I did not see anything on my trip there last June but there are even youtube videos out there of the barracuda. The family beach is protected whereas Serenity Bay is just like any other beach.

Barracudas have a nasty reputation and it's unearned. Sure they look mean with those teeth, but I've encounered plenty of them while snorkeling and they don't do much of anything except hang around in their territory. The only time I've seen one get aggressive it chased off a reef shark that had entered into its territory (this was in St. John). It went right back to cruising around once the shark left.

Leave sea critters alone and they will leave you alone.

-Sandy (far more worried about mustard coral, jellyfish, and sea urchins than sharks and barracudas)

We started out at the family beach but headed over to the adult beach when we got tired of sand being kicked up by kids running by us.

Serenity Bay was great, especially when it started to rain, everyone left. We sat under our umbrella with towels covering our legs while we read. The sun came out again and we had the beach to ourselves, the tram too when we had to leave.

We'll be checking out the new water slides before heading to Serenity Bay next month. Can't wait1

Thank you all for your help and advice, I think we shall give the adults beach a try when we go. I soooo need a holiday as we are having terribly cold weather here in the UK. Still keeps snowing and is bitterly cold. This has been one of the coldest march's for many years. Roll on 31st of August.
