Such a great place! It's only $70 pesos per person for access to the beach, beach chairs with umbrellas, shower and bathrooms. This is the only beach that you can really swim at on the south end of the island. Plus bring your snorkel mask...More

$5 usd or 70 pesos gets you a day pass to use their beach chairs and umbrellas. Water is beautiful and inviting. Iguanas lounge all over the grounds while you take in the impossibly blue water. Only drawback I found - between the hotel's guests...More

Amazing place to take the kids for the afternoon. Great snorkeling, lots of critters to be found. Cheaper than the bigger one up the street.

Nice beach club. Is now 70 peso to get in, but considering price of loungers on north beach thats not bad. Load of fish in the water, saw lobster and puffer fish, anenomies, coral. Cafe is ok not good not bad.

We had a nice visit to Garrafon in July, 2017. Admission is very inexpensive. We hit the beach around 11 am and found it on the crowded side - but less so than some of the other beach areas. When we arrived, we were able...More

A good, more relaxed, alternative to the nearby Garrafon Natural Reef Park. Nice restaurant/bar, sun shade lounge area, easy access snorkeling. Not a real natural reef, but a good place to get out of the heat.

Many people go to the main attractions. This is literally the next bay down from Garrafon. It has a decent price, local owners and one can enjoy the snorkeling while watching the neighbor, Garrafon, be inundated with tourists. If you choose to buy the fish...More

Yes, used mask, mouth piece and flippers (the flippers for an extra charge, but I don't think it was too much). Next time though, we'll probably take our own - at least the mouth piece.
