Great snorkel spot - crowded

Plenty of people on the beach, but the water was pretty bare for snorkeling. Saw tons of fish. I'd go back.

Not as pebbly as other beaches, but still not comfortable without water shoes. Gorgeous rock formations though and beautiful water!

This beach is beautiful but gets REALLY busy in the afternoons. We got lucky and found a parking spot, but I would definitely plan ahead to make sure parking isn't an issue.

Years ago we snorkeled there and it was lovely, this year it appears pretty beat up and the fish not too plentiful. The guides broke up tortillas to bring some fish around but the coral is dead and no plant life. Sad to see.....

This beach was recommended by a local for snorkeling. We saw fish immediately as we waded into the water.

He provided life jackets and took us out to an amazing snorkel experience- beautiful variety of fish, the... More
