Its about 2.4km from the front to reach the beach. Great Beach though with lots of iguanas just roaming around the beach. For more calm waters, go to the other end of the beach and you find lots of people chilling, kayaking and snorkeling.
It's just a short hike away and you get to see one of the most beautiful beaches for your money! Money?! Oh wait it's free! Try to go there early when its empty!
