First and the most widely followed is from the Jetty, 20 minutes by boat. ” Read Full Review

Beach side is very safe and you can go deep into water and there are some fun rides like jet ski and banana rides. The Sea side is very deep, you will have to stay close to the shore line, the rock formations here are awesome! , you can take cool pictures!!” Read Full Review
