THE VENETIAN Where & When To Start Looking Finding the right place for you is wildly subjective, so take time in curating when you’d like to come, where you’d like to stay, and what type of accommodation provides the setting most conducive to your R&R.

Many restaurants and bars overlook the marina and make excel-lent spots to watch the sunset. Smith’s Reef is a great snorkelling spot nearby, and Grace Bay stretches for miles to the east.
