  • Beach clean, crystal clear water, fish swimming along with the swimmers, with the cave also to be admired. Well worth spending a few hours on this site. Don't go just to see the cave, is the beach itself is a major attraction.

  • We arrived on the beach of the old bag. We got off the boat and the boatmen led on a hillside of stone. And we did a little path between the stones and we arrived in a very interesting cave until you have a good time and not cause phobia in people. Interesting take a camera water proof or a dust cap water proof for mobiles to make some pictures. My daughter was with me and liked it

  • No big deal, a small cave little difficult to enter because you need to climb some rocks that are not small so if the boatman to offer this option to run because it's no big deal
