Solid spot to get in the water. Nice warm water to snorkel in. Saw a good amount of starfish and other small fish. I would recommend if you have the chance to get here.

By now all starfish are dead and only thing you can find here is cheap beer and expensive beach sits.

Try to find a spot towards the edges of this beach so you have more privacy. Be careful of the tiny prickly coral things that might pinch your foot.
