This is nice place to walk on and enjoy the view. It is okay for snorkel but the beach is stony and makes it for difficult access to water without water shoes

At the stop in the park we saw lots of iguana's begging for some food and offering themselves for making some nice pictures. The beach is perfect, beautiful, the sea sometimes a bit rough. Really worth a stopover when visiting the park.
