Great place to snorkel (with possibility of seeing turtles) with difficult access only on low tide. Another beach well worth the effort.

Great tranquil beach, great rock formations on the sea. Dont miss the restaurants at the entrance that sell the fish done on banana leafs. Really good. There is a small trecking pasageway that takes you to the next beach that is rochy but great for snorkeling. Incredible views to the rock formation from the trecking road.

You have to ask around and find out what is low tide. You access this beach by hiking during low tied from Dos Padres beach. This is not really a swimming beach except in the most ideal conditions.

This beach is a really paradise. To get there you will need to pass through a trail of stones. Amazing!

Search for the low tide hours, and be carefull when walking over the rocks, that can be slippery when wet. It will be a lot more confortable and safe if you use some kind of sporting shoe. Other than that, you will have an incredible experience, snorkling in pristine, safe waters.
