Punta Sur

How far is it from the beach to the reef?..I remember reading,there are 3 rest areas on the way out..Is this for novice swimmers or is the reef that far out?..

I am not real good with distances but I would guess about 150 - 200 yards. When I was there in June, my group of 7 (ages 13-49) made it out without stopping at the platforms. There is a sandbar right before the reef where the water is about 4 feet deep. We did stop there for a minute.

We are all good swimmers - if you are not a good swimmer, take some kind of flotation device (snorkel vest, pool noodle, etc).
