This is something you HAVE TO DO! Absolutely amazing to get this close to the sea-turtles, and something you could maybe struggle to do yourself, by hiring a pedalo, but still possible

This beach was amazing. You could see where the turtle eggs were laid which was really cool. The sea was okay but full of boats making swimming less fun. Views were amazing and I would recommend
