Great place for snorkeling in search of sharks and bigger sea creatures. I personally saw 2 species of sharks, a huge turtle and a lobster. Memories for a lifetime.

We visited this beach and saw many baby sharks on shallow water. It was great fun. The baby sharks mind their own business so not dangerous at all. Worth the visit.
