We went here through a water boat taxi, this beach is a snorkel enthusiast's paradise. It's a bit crowded and there's no bathroom. Hence, you can't stay there for more than a couple of hours. There's a few people who sells chips, beers and water which is great if you didn't come there unprepared. Just make sure you bring a... More

Excellent view of the amazing fish! The water was very choppy! But overall had an amazing time with the crew.

If you want to see Pelicans go to the far end of the Marina and ask the locals where the fisherman prepare your catch for you to eat. We stumbled across this area when we were walking towards the coast on our way to Lovers beach. There would've been 10 Pelicans waiting for some offerings from the fisherman prepping the... More

It's just a short water taxi ride from Medano Beach. We were originally going to go to Lover's beach, but our taxi driver told us that there was more swimming and more fish around there, so we went there instead. There are a lot of people trying to sell stuff to you as soon as you get off. If you... More

Beautiful little beach with some awesome snorkeling in the company of the pelicans. Take a glass bottom boat (Baja 7 with Miguel was our favorite) and stay there for 2-3 hours. The fish there is spectacular and the swimming is very safe there. Even for little kids. You can rent the boat with the snorkeling equipment included. They will pick... More

To get to the beach you take a short water taxi over and let them know what time you want to be picked up. The Pelican Rock is something that you can swim out to, climb on and jump into the water. Snorkeling in this area is great. Once you get to the beach you can rent an umbrella, and... More

All sorts of fishys to swim with. Diving off the top of the rock. Dark crabs can be found in the crevices. Pelicans like Pelican rock. Divers swim down the base of the rock.

Enjoy Snorkeling here only because it is close to our resort. However it gets very crowded and boats get dangerously close. Watch yourself if you go here the waves can sometimes also be dangerous. Try and go when the water is calm, that way the waves aren't so bad and the water is much clearer.
