  • Great snorkeling, beautiful beach , great service at marlin restaurant (excellent coconut shrimp and strawberry margaritas) Not crowded.
  • One of my favourite beaches in Mexico. Food is great, view amazing. Not overly crowded. Many locals come here. There are areas to explore nearby for the adventurous. Highly recommend beach shoes for the water.
