As others suggest, The Baths is a great stop. The path is fun and the beach is nice. BUT, if you want to get away from the crowds, have a nice beach all to yourself and enjoy some great snorkeling, stop at Fallen Jerusalem. There's only 2 mooring balls (1 red, 1 yellow dive ball) and noone has ever been there when we go.
If noone else comes, you can pretty much spend the day as we've done. The snorkeling is far better than the Baths (I've seen huge puffers, a turtle, lobster, flounder and all the other typical fish you'll see). It's also right next to the Bath's, so you can go check out the Bath's and then move.
I also like Sandy Spit. Another great spot to go for the day to relax by the beach, take in some snorkeling..etc. And while there, don't forget to go check out the bubbling pool!
This last trip we stayed at Soper's hole one night. It had a great breeze (actually it was a bit crazy with 20+ knot winds and heavy rain.), but we still enjoyed our time. We got in early and spent some time ashore browsing the shops..etc. They also have a pretty well stocked market so its a good spot to grab any needed provisions.
And finally, pick up a mooring ball by Salt Island. Take a walk and check out the salt pools and if its clear enough, snorkel over the Rhone!
Regardless of what you do, I'm sure everyone will have a blast.
