Los Pinos

On the very far west end of the cove is the island of Los Pinos, or "The Pines". This island is larger and has plenty of firm land.

It is a magnet for discarded trash along the islands shore. Hurricane Georges uprooted many trees and bushes making navigation across the property difficult so few visitors with bare feet and swimsuits venture beyond the first 20 yards into a more pristine interior.

An exploration of this little island requires sturdy shoes and mosquito repellent.

Andrés beach

Directly across from this island towards the main shore is an old but still operating sugar factory, a key source of employment for the town of Andrés, often called "Andrés de Boca Chica".

Andrés beach is lined with natural palm leaf beach umbrellas, wooden slat chairs, and tables. It is crowded on weekends, quiet on weekdays. Playa Andrés is a good stretch of beach used mainly by locals is located between the marina and Boca Chica Beach.
