This town has a marine reserve, and is a good place to see fish and sea mammals. The town itself is very small, and there is a semi-desert habitat a very short walk away.

2/24/2008: I came here mostly to check out some scuba diving as advised by Jaques Costeau, and the diving was interesting with large schools of frequently jumping rays. The water was a little choppy making it not the easiest of dives.
