The beach area was nice. Has a boat launch. typical public park. Plenty of parking the day I went. Waters are not well marked if you use a boat. Easy to find. Right on main road.

Reccommended by our hotel, this was a nice spot for a swim. There is a park for kids, tennis courts, basketball court.... We only went for the beach and swim. We even snorkeled a little and saw fish there are small mangroves too.
