There are many beaches that have rocks in the water like this. In this case I think it is playa Lagun.

The only thing I think it is a picture of a couple of years aga. On the clif at the left there are apartments now. Or maybe the picture was taken at an angle you don't see them. My guess playa lagun a couple of years back.

Yes it is Lagun, on the left you will see apartments indeed.

Good spot for snorkling.

Thanks. I was looking for some rocks to jump into the water from and these looked like they would be great for that.

Are the apartments that you have been referring to, available for rent?

Sure those are for rent. there are apartments on both side of the bay.

One is called Lagun blou and the other if I am not mistaken lagun ocean resort. Their websites:

If you can dive from the rocks in lagun I am not sure. Some beaches for sure I saw people diving from the rocks are: Playa Forti (westpunt), Groot Knip(Playa abou), Daaibooi

Thanks huub999. I will look into those apartments. There must be hundreds of lodging locations that I have never heard of ever after doing lots of internet searches.

I should also be asking where Playa Lagun is located on the island. Is it near West Punt?

Lagun is about a 5 min drive from the village of westpunt. It is loacated like 40 min from downtown.

There are lots of lodging options in this area. No big chains however. Lots of people stay over here very quiet and laid back area. Not many dining options around. Rental car if you stay here is almost a must.
