Very lovely, take a small boat from deep blue hotel to the small rock. You can climb one min to the top for lovely pics and snorkel the shallow reef area. There is no beach but a large dock.

This was a stop on a boat tour around the island. It's a nice little Colombian National Park with a small admission fee. The snorkeling was nice. Be sure to look under the dock and climb to the top of the hill.

Lots of turtles! It’s 17,000 pesos to enter. There are plenty of boats next to deep blue hotel that can take you over there.

Crab Cay and surrounding reefs are an incredible experience! I would recommend coming here to anyone, families with children, teenagers, solo travelers, older couples, etc. Breathtaking views and beautiful, turquoise waters to snorkel in.
