nice beach, not too crowded, carribean style!

Guadalupe has many fine beaches and we were visiting one a day until we found this one. Then the sightseeing ended, because nothing compares. It's like Jimmy Buffett meets Gilligans Island. It's shallow and teeming with life. You can snorkel in a foot of water way out and see even by the shore colorful fish hermit crabs. The locals bring... More

Lovely beach...not an easy access...but worth the effort. Lots of shady areas. Long beach you can walk....and swimming is in shallow waters....great for kids. Excellent area for a picnic.
