“Great place to go diving with children (and adults)”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The view is astounding and on a clear day you can see turtles and all kind of fish, it is really amazing. Our daughter of 9 has become a fan of diving thanks to Porcos!

“Great beach with restaurant for lunch”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Great tranquil beach, great rock formations on the sea. Dont miss the restaurants at the entrance that sell the fish done on banana leafs. Really good. There is a small trecking pasageway that takes you to the next beach that is rochy but great for snorkeling. Incredible views to the rock formation from the trecking road.

“Tricky to get there but worth it”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

You have to ask around and find out what is low tide. You access this beach by hiking during low tied from Dos Padres beach. This is not really a swimming beach except in the most ideal conditions. Waves come crashing in and can take away all the tiny sliver of sand beach to enter. But it is a very photographic beach. Crabs scurry across the rocks. Please observe the sign and do not go past the NW edge of the sand sliver to the tide pool that they are trying to protect up on the rock ledge.

Reviewed 24 March 2014

This beach is a really paradise. To get there you will need to pass through a trail of stones. Amazing!
