Snorkeling and sunsets

This is a lovely, and quiet, low-key beach. Facilities at the beach are limited, although there are some vendors, so bring with you what you'll need. Although they look inviting and familiar, don't even dream of trying the fruit of the Manchineel trees, they're extremely poisonous in spite of looking like apples. Their Spanish name is manzanilla de la muerte, "little apple of death" and even sitting under them or touching them is dangerous. The ones at this beach are marked with warning signs, but you need to watch out if you have children, and keep well away.

There is excellent snorkeling from the beach, with a fine variety of sea life on display. If you spend the afternoon here you should stay for the spectacular sunset.
