I agree with SacAnnie. We were there in April and the algae was rather overwhelming. Also, it's very shallow right off the beach. The pool, with bar service, is terrific!

If you're so inclined, I would suggest a snorkeling tour. There are some amazing spots to view outstanding coral and sea life!

If you go, seek out beautiful and charming Amy S. as your server. Have fun!

Yes at matachica it is. They have a crew that rakes the sand. At other places it's not.

Yes. In fact they have a dock you can swim to. We also used paddle boards in the sailboat right off of the beach. If you just want to walk in the shallow water I would also suggest swim shoes but it is very swimmable. It is a beautiful beach.

When we were there, there was an algae bloom which made beach swimming unappealing. However, the snorkeling is lovely and convenient, and you can jump into the shallow water at the end of the pier. They have a lovely pool, also!
