    Look for the sea turtles on the beach. But don't get to close.

    Turtles are often seen here resting on the warm beach heads. Be sure to keep at least 18 feet from them.

    Give the sea turtles their space, don't steal the sand, and take plenty of photos. Those are the rules. Learn 'em, know 'em, live 'em...

    Too many stones. Really hard to swim especially if you don't want the stones to hurt you.

    Great place to observe turtles. The water's tad chilly to swim and there're ants so keep an eye on your food.
