There are plentiful stonefish (potentially lethal sting) near Playa Ejertivo - be extremely careful of wading in the rocky areas.
There are occasional coneshells (also potentially lethal) scattered about.
Giant stingrays (awesome!) live in the deeper waters off Playa Larga - swim a little further out toward the end of the buoy-marked swim area.
The water is not safe to drink here - hotels don't necessarily clue you in by offering or providing bottled water
Little to do on this island, bring a book as no stores on the island have any to sell you.
Book a year in advance around Christmas. You can just show up though, in July.
