Bring your snorkeling gear, or rent it nearby, for a colorful adventure in the natural pools formed by a series of coral reefs.

    Everyone says it and I confirm it, it is a very nice beach and is very good for boat taxi and see it from the sea. Also you can rent SUP or Kayaks and enjoys a lot, also you can sit in a parador or also there is a place of free beach, where you can pull a lonita and eat what you take or what vendors offer.

    Good beach, of medium length, you can explore the place. View of the stones is beautiful, has restaurants, structure but very expensive. The trick is to have lunch at the restaurant before the entrance to the beach
