Very nice little beach. Small benches to sit. Many iguanas on the trail and coming out of the water. We also saw a sea turtle and a sea lion in the water.

After the tours, bike ride and seeing all kinds of birds and animals this is a great way to end the day. A very short walk from the "downtown" area. Just relax and look at waves or take a swim.
