At the stop in the park we saw lots of iguana's begging for some food and offering themselves for making some nice pictures. The beach is perfect, beautiful, the sea sometimes a bit rough. Really worth a stopover when visiting the park.

This is a dive site where you will be greeted by many lizards. There is also a flamingo spotting opportunity. When it is time to drive off make sure you chase the lizards away as they will be hiding under your car.

Very pretty beach on the rough side of the island. No sandy entry, but great for pictures, snorkling, etc.
