A very nice and easy hike throughout. This hike will only take 25 minutes most all along clear and clean terrain.

A very nice and clear pool awaits your arrival.

Life jackets will be distributed as this pool is deep throughout.

Trekking back out is a longer trek as we walk all the way to the beach which will take for the most 45 minutes.

At the beach, calm waters to have a good swim and enjoy.

At the other side of the beach is very rough and very scenic. Great for those who wish to take things easy and just enjoy nature and its offerings.
