Beaches

Loved by locals, popular for snorkeling and boaters. Caracoles is one of the islands of La Parguera Nature Reserve off the town of Lajas. From all the islands in La Parguera, this is the most popular for snorkeling. The waters are like glass, crystal clear and calm, the earlier you get here in the day the better the conditions are. When in Caracoles you’re always on the water, there is no beach, no sandy area. The water surrounding the mangrove cay is shallow, even the kids can walk around on the water safely and swim along the mangrove channel.
