A path lead from the beach uphill into the jungle area of the property, into lush tropical vegetation with numerous nipa and coconut palms. There are limestone grottos and a cave hidden at the ocean front.

The beach is obviously subject to ocean tides. Animals include tropical birds, crabs, starfish, small fish jumping out of the clear water. There are no sea urchins inside the lagoon.
