If it wasn't windy it would have been perfect. Beach was very clean and water was beautiful. We hiked around the rocks and nestled up on the beach away from many people.

We kayak here during the winter months. Its one of our favourite places within a short distance to La Paz.

The water is very shallow all the way across the bay. You can only snorkel when you swim around the corner past "the mushroom" rock. It is the best protected beach from wind and is lovely.

We took the day and walked the beaches. Tide went very low. Good beach for walking around and sunbathing, not so much swimming as the water is not deep. Very serene.

I do recall seeing some people sleeping on that beach. It would be a great idea.
