Fodor's Review

This small, 500-foot-long beach about 2 miles (3.2 km) east of Río San Juan has virtually no waves in its shallow water. Its clear, protected water and nearby caves makes its superb for snorkeling (though the caves shouldn't be entered for safety reasons). The beach is off-white and protected by rocky cliffs. It's a good family beach for just playing around in the water. Look for the whismical human-head statues in the cliffs overlooking the water that give the area an

Easter Island feel. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
