Specialities and Highlights
Ocean View, witihin its comfort, offers one of the most spectacular views of the ocean and it is located in front of one of the most beautiful and protected coral areas of the island, where you can snorkel and dive in depths from ten to twelve feet. Near the house, on the southern tip, there are a variety of attractions. There is a nice daytime restaurant with an ocean view terrace, where you can watch surfers surfing the waves. Also nearby, we have various beaches within walking distance. One of them, Charquitos, is ideal for kids and their parents and for the elderly because of its shallowness and small waves. Other options are the beach of Bengay, where you can totally relax and Sound Bay, one of the longest beaches on the island. The latter one can be reached by the bus that stops right in front of the house.
