  • You can't always swim here. Keep that in mind. It is stunning. Went here three times during our stay. The water was just stunning. Perfect to just sit and relax and enjoy the views.  more »

  • Incredibly beautiful place. Not very good for swimming. Very strong currents.
  • Gorgeous beach, turquoise waters and white sands. Surf gets a bit high in the winter.
