Although somewhat remote, the best and perhaps most suitable beach for snorkeling around Puerto Angel is the Playa la Tijera.
After a distance of 9.7 km (6 miles) you will arrive at the village of Colorado. Towards the end of the village turn off to your right onto a stoned pathway and drive a further 1.3 km (0.80 miles) until you get to the village of El Vigía. Here again keep to your right and drive a further 8.2 km (5.1 miles) through almost untouched nature until you arrive at Playa la Tijera. A car park lies a short distance away from the beach.
It is recommended to have a suitable vehicle for rough dirt roads, (e.g.: up from a VW beetle) even though the track is repaired annually following the rainy season.
It is also advisable to take enough refreshments with you as there is no possibility what-so-ever between El Vigía and the beach which is completely uninhabited.
