This small beach area has a restaurant and patio bar and beautiful gardens on a hillside. The views are gorgeous. It is relatively inexpensive and worth visiting for snorkeling off the shore. I recommend bringing your own snorkeling gear as the stuff they rent out...More

Well, it's not glamorous or ritzy but it's just what you need for the beach. Facilities could use an upgrade but the price is right. It's 50x cheaper than the park next door and whatever services you want you can purchase. Restaurant is quite good...More

My family and I went here one afternoon to snorkel, build sandcastles and relax. The price can't be beat, and it was very convenient to the Sotavento Condos, where we were staying. The water is aqua, clear and warm. Although the reef is dead, there...More

Much cheaper than the big pass next door. Sweet, little beach, nice umbrellas, plenty of seating. Brought a piece of bread snorkeling and the fish swarmed us, was great fun!

Perfect. Typical feel. Good snorkeling. Awesome service (how can he run like this all day in the hot sun!). We truly enjoyed our day with the kids. We could let them play around and dive with the rented lifevest.

What is provided to you when you rent the snorkel gear? A used mask and new snorkel mouth piece? Flippers?

Yes, used mask, mouth piece and flippers (the flippers for an extra charge, but I don't think it was too much). Next time though, we'll probably take our own - at least the mouth piece.
