  • The best beach of the area. You are dropped by a boat and you spend a day like Crusoe, alone on the island.  more »

  • This beach is paradise, white sand, turquoise blue sea. There is nothing on the spot so plan to eat and drink. Of the world there, but luckily we were not on each other. However, in September the weather may not be at the top and so water was not quite clear so we can observe the seabed but swimming and relaxation are very nice on this beach. At one end of the beach you have houses of associations for the protection of turtles and the spawning areas preserved.
