Immerse yourself in the busy beach at Playa Tortugas, a sandy strip lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars.

  • Really good place, you can take good photos with friends.
  • relatively uncrowded. decent off shore snorkeling. clear yet kind of cloudy waters. free (?) seats with umbrella behind ocean spa hotel. this is a cute lil public beach between many boat docks. i was debating between a 4 and 5 star rating, and decided to go with 4. while this is a nice beach, it isn’t absolutely breath taking like some others.
