Visit the turtle farm to learn about conservation on the island. I was worried about going based on some reviews. It’s not sad there at all.

This beach is definitely worth to visit. The water is cristal clear, the sand white and clean, the water very warm because of the flat access. There are coconut palm trees everywhere under which you can sit and relax. The bars and restaurants provide food...More
