White sands ,clear water ,shade if needed. Different fish in the water I could see while swimming. Avoid weekends because it gets crowded .Everything is beautiful but it seems that the people don't care much because they leave tons of garbage on the beach .

Super fun and lots of activities, volleyball and water sports-where locals hang out and you don't have to worry about being there after dark!

This is where you would go if you want to rent jet skis or do other beach activities. Probably not a good beach for Snorkeling because of the Jet skis.

Small pieces, occasionally, but nothing worth spending time for.
2 Questions: How much is a cab from the pier to the beach? Confirming there are vendors who rent chairs AND umbrellas? How much do they charge? Thanks!
