A beautiful sheltered bay to swim and snorkel in - large rays come into the shallows for feeding. Lovely hidden restaurant on the beach for coffee, beer and lunch, but they're closed on Saturdays. A camera is a must.

If you're looking for a place to disconnect and relax, you've found it. Castara Bay is the perfect place to kick back and watch the tide roll in. There is a small beach bar on the side of the bay that will keep a running tab for you (all day or all week!) and serves lunch and occasionally dinner. Beers... More

A friendly laid-back local and tourist crowd, not too busy, a couple of great restaurants right on the beach, nicely sloping entry into the water making it safe for young kids, regular sightings of stingrays in the shallows, a good reef off the northern end, some iguanas sunbathing on the rocks at the southern end and if you're there when...

A beautiful beach for swimming, sunbathing, watching boats, fishermen, and birds catching fish. Sun loungers available for a small fee on either side of the beach and there are restaurants right on the beach as well. Amazing sunsets!
