Boca del Drago
is one of the best beaches on the island. Though the surf can be rough at times, it is probably the happy medium in terms of its prettiness and the calmness of the water. Just offshore from the beach is a patchy coral-and-sand sea bottom that offers good snorkeling when the sea is calm and the water clear.
Boca del Drago isn't nearly as nice as Red Frog Beach or Playa Larga on Isla Bastimentos, where there's a good chance of encountering sea turtles if you camp out or make a night hike from one of the island's hotels. However, the surf at those beaches makes swimming unsafe.
