It was the beach of our dreams. Clear blue green water that we could've swam in all day long. We snorkelled by the rocks too and saw a great variety of fish & coral. It is worth taking your time and finding the breaks in the rock. I advise taking food with you so you don't have to leave to... More

This beach is only accessible by boat and has no development, which we loved. It's a large beach and there were only 4 other people on the beach when we were there.

great snorkeling off the boat close to Cacaluta. Lots of waves and undertow, so not great for swimming
