Was very cloudy when we went so didn't stay very long but it is indeed a beautiful beach. It has a small lagoon at the left side and a place to watch flamingo too.

I loved this beach but the horse flies made it somewhat unbearable unless you stay under the water. Gorgeous views and nice place to kayak. Not sure how to avoid the flies?

I was surprised by surrounding as the road goes through the desert, but at the end there was a nice beach, where you can swim, snorkel, rent a sea kayak or just watch pelicans hunting fishes. There is also a pond where you can usually...More

Not much shade to be found. Hot, at least in summer. Not an easy find, although people do ride bikes there. But as one young lady found out, getting there was only half the battle. She pleaded with our paid tour guide to give her...More
