This is a wonderful beach for snorkeling. Vans are parked from 8 until 2 or 3 with gear to rent. Just follow the signs and you'll arrive at an underwater paradise.

We love to snorkel and this beach is a gem. Enter the beach far to the left. Make sure to wear water shoes for the rocky terrain. We saw beautiful tropicals, a juvenile reef shark and sea turtles! It was amazing!

Bring your own mask and check this out - the reefs are close to the shore and lots of fish - we didn't see turtles but heard this is a great place to see them. I actually preferred this beach over Flamenco. Tip: Bring water...More
