A lovely beach where the mangrove meets the sea. There is a small bar/restaurant along the beach with a limited menu and cold drinks. Prices are not that cheap, but it is a beautiful location.

That's a very beautiful place to watch the sunset, mainly for couples, that was very romantic. We made many amazing photos, we got a short tour through the river by canoe and we saw few sea horses.
