We each paid $10 to spend the day. That covered the first $10 of food or drink plus hammocks, table and chairs or lounges. It was not crowded on the Sunday we were there. Beach was beautiful. Food and drinks good. Service good.

It is kinda trashy and the food is not that good but the snorkeling is amazing. They also have a volleyball net where you can bring your own ball and play.

Corona Beach Club was an easy stop with full-service refreshments and drinks steps away from snorkeling. Bring your own gear or rent, walk into the water, and snorkel your brains out! The tide was a little strong pushing us but we saw beautiful fish and...More
