Nice beach. $20 pp included 2 chairs, umbrella and 2 welcome drinks. Food overpriced and not good. Cocktails severely overpriced. $18 daiquiri. Owch. Free snorkel with turtles - hit an infestation of sea lice. Second week went again. No turtles spotted either time.

I was to visit the beach near here. Glad I did. Got a fee, I got beach chairs and an umbrella. Also credits to use for food and drinks. Foos is ok, but it's beach food. Not a resort restaurant. Would return again.

It was roughly $3-$5 per person to get there. There a free shuttle rides back from the boatyard.
