A beautiful sandy-pebbly beach with deep, cool waters in the north of the island. This is a great destination after a tour of the northern part of the island. The crystal clear waters and small caves found in the little bay are perfect for snorkeling and exploration. During the summer months, in the late afternoon hours, the rocky shelter surrounding the beach offers a natural shade for the bathers. The area is not widely developed but a few basic facilities can be found in the vicinity.
