The sea turtles come up to the beach to rest at night. They come up close to sunset between 5-6 pm. Also great surfing too.

Sea Turtles, sea turtles and more bigger sea turtles. It's not the biggest beach, but water is great for swimmers and surfers... and sea turtle gawking. Loved it, would go again anytime.

This was recommended by a local. You are guaranteed to see loads of turtles here absolutely fantastic. However the locals slightly spoilt it - gangs of young boys trying to stab turtles and the adults getting drunk and littering up the beach.

Great place to snorkel. If you get there before 7:00am you can get in for free and you don't have to pay for parking either. The path to the cove is steep so I suggest if you walk down you can catch a ride back...More
