Half Moon Bay Beach is the one that's nearest to these accommodations. A small protected inlet that keeps waters calm and supports a rich underwater marine habitat, Half Moon Bay Beach is a great spot for snorkeling, but it is quiet and relaxing enough that you can spend a day relaxing on the shore as well.

If you're looking for a more secluded and private beach scene, Playa Chacal might be worth a visit. Chacala is one of the most underdeveloped beaches along the coast. Aside from a resort property, the beach is void of any excess. Visitors who head to this shore are doing so in order to escape the pressures of daily life and enjoy a day of seclusion in a tropical paradise. It's situated three miles south west of the hotel.
