The beach is beautiful. There is plenty of parking, and it feels very safe. This would be a great spot for those who like to spend the entire day camped out at the beach.

Top choice for everything but snorkeling. Drinks, food, paddle boards, kayaks, and taxis. Lots of trees to get out of the shade. Water is shallow and warm. Good views.

It's a park, so it's kept clean and maintained. 12$ a person fee, no biggie. Such a gorgeous beach! And iguana are all through the park which was very cool. No worries they are way more scared of you, then you are of them.

The beach is quite small, there's a small gift shop and a bar/restaurant (though it's less restaurant and more outside type grill kinda place). We were quickly bored and left after an hour. If your goal is to lay on a tiny beach with beautiful waters then... More

Flat bottom sand, no snorkeling. Crowded even in August. Hanging out with the kids makes this a good place for the family to go.

They said "It's like walking on baby powder" and they weren't lying! The water was crystal clear! Absolutely beautiful.
