We spent many hours on this beautiful quiet beach. The snorkeling was great. We saw sea turtles, spotted eels, and hundreds of colourful fish.

This beach is a little gem but has several problems. There is almost no place to park near the entrance and legal parking is a LONG ways away. Once at the entrance you are faced with going down a steep slope on an old and...More
