Continuing up the left side, are caves and an arch to explore.Swim out to the island on the right side for shallower snorkeling. Small sparkly bright blue fish dart among green coral that is almost iridescent.The Beach Club is a great place to grab a drink while you peruse your fish card trying to recall all the many fabulous fish that you swam with.
Sargeant Major What you’re likely to see:

  • Large school of parrot fish (10-20)
  • Trigger fish (looks like a unicorn)
  • Tons of angel … mostly King but many large Cortez too
  • Blenny
  • Puffer
  • Wrasse
  • Rays
  • Sergeant major
  • Huge star fish

Location: To get to the beach club, take the main road past the MarinaTerra Hotel, and then turn left at the roundabout and continue to follow the road towards the water (at the Marinaterra Beach Club). If you go in through the Beach Club entrance, you may be asked to pay a fee, even if you just want to pass through to get to the beach. So instead, park in their lot, and then walk to the left of the Beach Club where you will see a path beside a home (adjacent to the Club) which you can use to get to the beach.

The Marina Terra beach club is also a great place to kayak.
