La Piscinita, San Andres

4.0
#1 of 18 in Wildlife in San Andres Island
Crystalline waters, vibrant marine life, and excellent snorkeling typify La Piscinita, a pristine strip of coastline on San Andres Island in the Caribbean Sea. Take a snorkeling tour to fully appreciate the colorful coral and aquatic life offshore. While the beach lacks fully developed tourist infrastructure, you can grab a meal at the nearby restaurant. Wear shoes suitable for walking on jagged rocks that cover much of the shorefront, and look out for the occasional spiky creature on the sea floor. Make La Piscinita part of your personalized San Andres Island itinerary using our San Andres Island trip itinerary planner.

I recommend watching fish from any other point of the coast with very similar results.
