You might consider stopping by the Money bar to snorkel and then heading out to one of the other beach clubs to keep everyone happy. Good luck!
It was not TOO difficult from shore, but the currents were there, and getting in the water on the stairs was a little difficult. There is a pretty good area you can stand in though, so that is a good way to ease into snorkeling. The snorkeling was amazing, and drinks and food are reasonably priced- chairs free.
However, the beach is just trucked in sand.
Chakanaab seems the best bet for a non-snorkeler, but it is expensive for entry. We only have experience with Money Bar.

We had a decent deal for $60- hour of snorkeling, thirty minute massage, lunch & drink, cocktail and full use of the facility- which I guess is free anyways
The snorkeling was awesome..but yes, the current was STRONG. When I was done- I was exhausted..but then it again it doesn't help that I had a lot sun exposure, alcohol intake and not enough water since I had gotten on the ship!
I would highly recommend it. Here are a couple of pics from our trip!
