Went for the snorkeling and found an attractive small park setting with adequate parking. There was a freshwater shower and a nice bathroom on site. Gentle water conditions and excellent micro-beach for getting in and out of the water. Would recommend!

Nice beach along the road. Good snorkelling spot. Saw many fish and a turtle. Commercial snorkeling tours use this spot if ocean is rough elsewhere. Washrooms and shower on site. Parking along the road and also a parking lot.
