Beaches so beautiful surrounded by jungle. Clear water,not a lot of people on the beach,have enough space to chill and relax. Because of trees you can find a shadow just on the beach all day long.

This beach just goes on and on and on and is just so beautiful. Beautifully lined by trees and the water is an amazing blue green in color. Surfs up, come and check it out.
