Water is a deep, turquoise blue and green. There is only one very good restaurant, try the clams. A good place to relax.

Pichilingue is not the prettiest beach, but we enjoyed an afternoon kayaking there. There is a rocky outcropping on the right that has a small but colorful reef with plenty of fish. Uncrowded and pleasant.

Lovely beach with places for food, rentals and drinks, however, if the wind is blowing out of the North this beach gets blown out. So, good place to visit on a less windy day.

The large restaurant with the sandy floor also turned out to be one of our favourites in this area. We shared a fried whole fish and it was delicious. This beach although looked like it was too close to the Ferry terminal action turned out to be one of the best for snorkelling. Off to the right hand side if... More

Discovered this place almost accidentally. Talk about eating on the beach under a thatched roof and sand floor. So good we went back the next day for lunch. Really recommend the clams. They have a pen on the beach where the divers put the clams and when you order them, they go out and get them out of the pen.... More
