Owner description: Known for ideal snorkeling and scuba diving, the water at this beach is so clear that even snorkelers can make out the 400-foot SS Antilla shipwreck from the surface.

Small beach but you can not ask for better snorkeling. This is where all the snorkeling boat tours take their groups. Free parking or take the bus or taxi. Chairs can be rented and palapas are free. FYI you can snorkel as long or short a time as you like without having to pay for the tours which give their groups between 15 to 30 minutes for ACTUAL snorkel time.

We snorkeled here a lot during our two-week stay. Recorded a lot of underwater video from here up at least a 1/4 of a mile.

The fish really put on a show for you through this area and there are many varieties to see.

We had a great visit to this beach. We took the bus to Ashanti. But it was cloudy there. We walked a little south and found a palapas put our stuff under the shade and headed out. Saw literally thousands of fish. The excursions boats were right off shore. We swam out by them and saw beautiful reef and fish. We spent only the money for bus and had a longer swim. No need to do the snorkeling excursion

Small but beautiful spot, just past the high rise area. One of the only good spots for snorkeling. Because of all the rocks you need to be careful here, it is more rocks than sand here, but it is worth a stop, even just for pictures.

This is not a good swimming beach but it's great for snorkeling. Take the bus ($4 pass ride all day) which will drop you off right across from the beach. There are 6-8 umbrella huts where you enter, but the snorkeling there is not good. Walk several minutes to the right, where you can find a little shade from trees on private property just behind you. Walk carefully in among the rocks to see quite an array of sealife. If you are new to snorkeling, this is a great place to start. Important--wear swimmer's shoes or flippers as the rocks will hurt your feet. Bring food and water...none is available there. The beach is free!
