Punta Galindez is a point into the Caribbean Sea which protects a small beach area with clear water and just enough soft white sand for a nice sized gathering of friends. It has a lot of small pieces of broken coral in shapes of letters, which is why we sometimes refer to it as “alphabet beach”. There are rocky sections as well and a small surf break which can be fun for more advanced paddleboarders. The snorkeling is good here as well. It can be very quiet, wonderful for solitude, or a hoppin’ place when someone has a party going on.

There is some shade under the trees along the sand.
