The volcanic rock formation created a hige natural pool and the ocean comes and goes keeping the water continuously fresh. Very crowded on weekends so come early. Nice bar and grill with ocean view.

Beautiful beach, local's favorite. Just one piece of advice, stay in the shallow water area. There is an open area that goes to the very deep ocean, with a strong undertow and big waves. People that know hot to swim think this is going to...More
