Small, secluded beach where you can swim or snorkel with tropical fish. Very beautiful, tranquil. The water is extremely warm, particularly because you can go a few hundred meters from the beach and still be up to waste deep. It's West facing so y can enjoy the warmth until the sunset.

Such a sense of privacy by beautiful blue water, and white sand! Umbrellas, chairs and towels are provided. I listened to music and watched TV shows, while getting a tan!
