  • Tranquile, warm and beautiful beach. You can see tons of marine life (baby sand sharks, carey, tons of different fishes). If you do a 5 minute hike you will find best views in the city. 
  • Turtles turtles turtles and calm protected water with historical ruins just hope the Donald does not sell it to the highest bidder
