Nice beach, reef is poor, it's very shallow and the waves make it a dangerous spot unless your skilled. More beer bottles then fish. Its better farther out but would need a calm day to get out that far.

Although this beach can be hard to find, its great for a day visit. The beach is located in a cove and is usually exempt from the ocean waves and is usually quite tranquil. Snorkelling is not too bad and you don't have to go...More

Beautiful bay with clean sand and crystal clear waters, local vendors offer not only souvenirs but grilled seafood served to you with a Presidente beer obviously.

We stopped here as part of a day tour. Nice secluded beach. Some people were snorkeling. There are cement busts along one end that was interesting.

this was a gorgeous beach and if we knew it existed we would have come here at least twice for the week. Also have little huts where you can eat.

Great for surfing or just chasing waves. Strong currents so watch the little ones that are playing close to the shore.
