  • Another fantastic beach in the area. The parking is a tad tough, but other than that beautiful beach, amazing snorkeling. Explore to the right of the permanent umbrellas... Forgot the name of those things.

  • Great beach with lots of free parking, palapas, and bathrooms. Get there before 9:30 to secure a palapa. Water is smooth with no waves. We had a great time!

  • Nice beach, but very rocky. Good for surfing.
