Like the name of the beach. The water is crystal blue. Beautiful beach with actual sand. The snorkeling also. To bad. The waitress here is very nice.

Not my favourite place to snorkel but it was still good. There are lots of fish but due to the large number of people, most of the vegetation is gone. It's fairly shallow and visibility is good but there can be a strong current.

My son and I spent the day here, was nice to get away from all of the seaweed on the main land. This place has a nice little beach and great snorkelling right out front! Food was ok with fair prices. I would visit again.

Not sure about renting it but definitely enough room for 70 people. I would get there when they open to make sure of seating. Wonderful people! Always smiling!
