Playa Forti

Playa Forti is famous for its view from the top of the cliff and the daredevils that jump from the cliff. This site requires a bit of a climb down the stairs, but once you are there it is an easy entrance from the dark sandy beach.

Lots of typical caribbean reef fish with regular sightings of green and hawksbill turtles, porcupine fish, and barracuda.
