Nice little cove with accessible beach. The turtles hang out here at dusk - so close you can almost touch them! Well worth coming for a look.
The beach proper is very small, just a small opening in the rocks. However, this place is great for snorkeling and watching sea turtles. We came here twice and both times we saw 3 or 4 adult (quite large) turtles plus a couple of infant ones. They're also very tame, so you can get really close to the action. Be warned that the turtles eat stuff growing on the rocks, so if you get too close the strong waves can push you to the rocks.
