#3 of 6 in Parks in Noord
Have a rest and a swim at Boca Catalina, a secluded bay with a white sand beach. Popular with local families and tourists alike, the beach enjoys a reputation for pleasant swimming and snorkeling. With a combination of clear and calm waters, you'll feel like you're in a swimming pool. A great variety of colorful fish live just offshore, including yellow boxfish, cowfish, triggers, and angelfish. Bring water shoes if planning to snorkel, as the bottom gets quite rocky in places.
