“Great Place To Visit”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

The beach here was gorgeous. Our snorkeling gear wasn't working (our own, so I'm not sure how the park's equipment was) but we enjoyed lounging in the hammocks and walking the beach.

The lighthouse has great views from the top, but is a bit of a climb. The boat ride that was included with the admission was fun - nothing special, but a great way to get out of the sun on a hot day.

The roads are the only thing to complain about there. We had a Chevy Aveo type rental with terrible shocks that made the drive to and from the beach/lighthouse very slow. Would highly recommend a SUV or dune-buggy unless you enjoy slow roads with lots of pot holes.

“Lots of beautiful views”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Very windy on the day we went so most of our pictures look a bit distressing. It rained after we arrived there, too, but we did get to see the lighthouse before it did. There is a little mini store you can get killer micheladas! Also, take some comfortable shoes and sunglasses.

“Dont go snorkling there”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

the park is beautiful and perfect for nature lovers and photographers. However plan to spend 3 hours driving (round trip) on a dirt road with puddle holes no more than 15km per hour. They advertise snorkling, so if you like fish I would recommend to spend $5 on a cheap chinese buffet and see fish there. You will see more fish there than snorkling there. $10 for a hamburger is a bit of a stretch.

The beach was beautiful though.

“Nice day trip”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Drive out to the South end and enter the park. For 12 buck you can climb the lighthouse, look for crocodiles, and take in a great beach. Super fun all day event. Access road can be rough some seasons.

“Very picturesque!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This place is beautiful once you get there. The dirt road to travel to it is washed out and rutted badly, but the area is gorgeous. They are doing some remediation there at the lighthouse area. The walk up the narrow lighthouse is so well worth the views you will get to see. I wish there would have been more time to spend relaxing on the beach as it was not crowded at all. However, we were there as part of an excursion and only allotted 20-30 minutes. We were also able to view crocodiles, white cranes and iguanas.
