I'm sure people are going to say they didn't have the same snorkeling.experience. I can only report on is what we saw --- or more accurately, did NOT see. The snorkeling was not good at all. There were hardly any fish, and the coral was quite brown. There was a fair amount of sloshing around due to the wave action.... More

We visited at the end of June and were so happy to have found this beach. It really is an adventure to just get to it with all the bumpy roads. We went early in the morning on the day we were heading back to the main island for the remainder of our trip. We were there from 8-10am and... More

We spent most of the day here. We snorkeled and laid out for a few hours. The water was very warm and calm. The bees were out but as long as you leave them alone they will do the same.

The most beautiful beach I've been to - worth all the bumps (and ditches) in the road leading in. Very limited parking = empty beach.

Solitary, cozy, medium size beach. Is very pretty, quite and relaxing... like a grateful and very kind girl... Is a sweet jewelry.

We walked the very short hike to this beach, and our first impression was that this was the beach we had seen from the internet. Drop dead gorgeous. We got there at 10:15 and were the only ones there. It was dreamy. But soon after, people arrived, which honestly wasn't that bad, but the other guests weren't as welcome -... More

My husband and I got there around 9:30 and had the whole beach to ourselves until about noon. Then the secret was out! There were a lot of people there in the afternoon. But we still found it enjoyable. Very pretty beach.

Secret Beach (also known as Pata Prieta) is a small beach situated in a cove. Gorgeous white sand and crystal blue water with VERY calm surf. This is a great beach for swimming or just standing in the water with a cold beer, as we did. Some trees along the back of the beach provide shade whenever you need a... More

out of the way, not so secret because others were there. The water was beautiful and calmer than red beach. It was a little hard to find and the road was bumpy but worth the ride. We loved our little secret beach

Do not be fooled by the name. Although this was a gorgeous location, it is definitely not a secret! This was by far the busiest beach we visited that day! We found much less crowded options further out on the reserve that were just as beautiful.
