Bachas Beach, located at the northern end of Sandra Cruz Island, is a kilometer long white sand beach, with turquoise water and black volcanic stone, perfect for walking, swimming and snorkeling. Its top highlights are the remains of the sunken barges dating back to World War II (“bachas” originates from the word “barges” that the local people couldn’t pronounce correctly in English) and the two small ponds where one can usually spot flamingos feeding. You can usually stumble upon sea turtles too, as Bachas Beach is one of their main nesting spots.
