Go through the jungle and some obstacles an you will find this small paradise. Great waves that is why they call it small Hawaii. Almost deserted when I was there. If you like adventure and great sceneries don't miss this one!

Small, often "private" beach surrounded by coconut trees, with white sand and warm water and one dude making delicious tapiocas (local snack) and opening up fresh coconuts for a cool drink. Can't ask for much more!
