Connie's Beach—It's a Secret!

Connie's Beach and Isla Loros

Connie's Beach and Isla Loros

IT’S CALLED PUNTO DE PLAYA PELENCHO on the map but to me it is “Connie’s Beach.” She “discovered” it on one of  her morning walks, a bumpy dirt road ending in a mile long cove of beach. The ATV tours sometimes stop by for a photo op with Isla Loros in the background and judging by the hoof-prints, the horsey crowd canters through on occasion. Otherwise Connie’s Beach is virtually un-visited.

              Fishing at Connie's Beach 

Even on the roughest days, the waves are small. The water is bathtub-warm and emerald green. The half-buried rocks that point to Parrot Island make a good place to fish—although I haven’t yet caught anything. I’ve hooked a few but still have nothing to show for it.

 The birding on the road and along the estuary has been pretty good, though. We got a pretty good look at an Amazon Kingfisher and a White-lored Gnatcatcher plus a photo of one of the thousands of hermit crabs. It's a wonderful place—but keep it under your hat!
