Beautiful to see. You can view from the hill above and see very far across the ocean or walk down to the lagoon below and have a swim. Locals are unfortunately a terrible nuisance and safety is an issue.

Definitely a must see and take lots of pics. If you are brave enough, you can swim out to the wall and jump into the waters where the see meets the river. Needs to be added to your bucket list!
