This beach was absolutely the most beautiful I have seen! Water was turquoise and clear. Snorkelling is a must! Chairs and palapas are cheap!

THe hotel beach is minimal. Not really a beach per se, just access to the water to swim and use the boats. Pillar beach is beautiful and people who go there do so as a destination.
