Mangel Halto Beach, Savaneta

(360+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
Known locally for excellent snorkeling, Mangel Halto Beach supports diverse marine life both inside the bay and in the coral's outer reaches. Snow white sands and beach huts face southeast, and a leafy network of mangroves hem in the bay that leads to the reef. More experienced snorkelers can head to the outer reef where octopuses, morays, and barracudas reside. On dry land, enjoy the many secluded corners of the beach and bring chairs or a towel to bask in the sun. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Savaneta holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Mangel Halto Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Mangel Halto is about 25 minutes from downtown and the big resorts so it's not as busy (or popular) and that's a big part of the lure. There are also a lot of mangroves to sit under. The beach itself ...  more »

  • I highly recommend this beach if you're in the mood for snorkeling. Just general wading in the water is nice as well, but there are some spots where water shoes might be desired. You can set up chairs...  more »
