The area was calm enough to snorkel, though had deep water where the snorkeling was worth-while. You need to be able to swim or bring a life jacket and have the ability to feel calm in a snorkel.

cheap to get to approx £3 from Gran Bahia,booked ourselves.Lovely beach which all the locals used with their families.You can swim out only a little way and swim with turtles,no need to go out on a boat.Need to sit on sand though shaded by palm trees ,quiet and unspoilt.There is a bar who does food aswell.Taxis to take you back to your hotel for fixed price.There was also a place to hire snorkel gear if you needed it and life jackets as well.We had a lovely time here well worth a visit

Walked to this beach a few times and also took the hotel bus to it a couple of times. Loads of sunbeds but not too crowded.

Brilliant place to swim with the turtles, don't pay the guides in the hotel, just turn up and follow where they go, it's a free beach so they can't stop you. The beach bar was good too, try some hot chilli sauce!!!
