  • Although this is a beautiful spot to spend a day and/or afternoon it is not kids friendly. The water is too rough and there are too many rocks. There are a handful of areas where one can swim "safely" without being pulled by the rip current. Besides that, this is perfect spot to catch a wonderful sunset or if you like surfing then this is the spot for you.
  • It was a little scary at first because the currents sweep you quickly, but if you stay off of the reef and follow the lightest blue areas, you should be fine. The snorkeling was amazing. I saw tropical fish of all colors, and even a puffer fish. The coral and reef itself was really cool, too!
