This is a very nice beach but gets crowded quickly. Get there early. Also all the sailboat tours drop all the snorkelers in front of the beach. Snorkeling is just average.

I did not see any dogs and I didn't see any signs saying no dogs, however, it is a turtle breeding area which is protected so I would suggest you do not take your dog there.
