  • The beach is beautiful! The sand is white with red particles, making it almost pink. Is beautiful, calm and clear waters. Not there is need of pay by a trip that you take to see turtles and shipwrecks. If you can go snorkeling with ease you can see where boats take people to see turtles and shipwrecks and you can swim there, they are 200 meters approximately. On the beach there are several people who offer you drinks, tours constantly.
