If you are looking for a secluded beach, then this is for you!! Beautiful non touristic, no vendors. There are no amenities so good for a few hours to spend on the beach.

This isolated beach is actually closer to our condo but not for the folks who like action. There is some tourist activity but all pre-arranged private vendors. It is scenic and often there is nobody on the beach except you (more often 1-5 people). You...More
