Some garbage lingering, as with all the beaches. I walked for kilometres on these beaches. Same things on all. People don't use the garbage receptacles in place. Such a shame.

There are lots of fish and corals to see. Be careful because the area is really shallow or the corals are just really high.

Amazing snorkelling - take about 45 minutes of snorkelling and you see beautiful reef and variety of fish. 10 CUC to get a picture taken which will be delivered to your resort for free. My wife is not an active swimmer and she really enjoyed it. We also went to Saturno Cave with this trip for free which was a... More

As an avid snorkeler, I wanted my husband to share the thrill of seeing the beauty of the underwater world. We had arranged our tour with our travel agent, but somehow ended up on a private excursion further down the beach than where the rest of groups snorkeled. From the second we stepped out of the cab, we were harassed... More

We stopped at coral beach on our jeep safari excursion. However, it was a windy day and too rough to snorkel. We were told this happens a lot, because the coral is so close to the surface, that even the smallest winds can make it dangerous. So somewhat boring just standing there looking at a rocky beach, and not being... More

I visited coral beach as part of a jeep nature tour. There was not a beach as such as the rock/coral comes right to the shore. We were kitted out with masks, fins and lifejackets - these because we had to swim out some way I guess. The guides leading us were excellent and very patient, particularly with some people... More
