  • GO HERE!! If you don’t want to take the beautiful but long walk, you can get a water taxi, which is what we did. The front part of the beach is stunning. There are beautiful trees and a big beach...  more »
  • Depending on the time of day the walk to the beach can be really warm, bring water and wear comfortable shoes! Once you get there, this is a beautiful natural beach. Keep an eye out for the signs...  more »

  • Its about 2.4km from the front to reach the beach. Great Beach though with lots of iguanas just roaming around the beach. For more calm waters, go to the other end of the beach and you find lots of people chilling, kayaking and snorkeling.
  • It's just a short hike away and you get to see one of the most beautiful beaches for your money! Money?! Oh wait it's free! Try to go there early when its empty!
