Mangel Halto is located in Pos Chiquito on the southeast coast just south of the Spanish Lagoon. It is a perfect sunning and snorkeling spot with calm, shallow waters rich in sea life supported by an intriguing network of mangroves. It is a secluded beach area perfect for picnics with white powdery sand and huts for shade. An excellent shore diving site, it is possible to walk out to the edge of the reef to behold such fish as parrotfish, yellowtail snapper, sergeant majors and blue tangs as well as deep water gorgonians, sponges and anemones. The reef plunges to depths of 110’ where octopi, morays and barracuda abound.

    This place looked scary. There was lots of garbage and the water was slimy along the shoreline. There were a handful of people here mostly getting stoned. Not a kid friendly place.

    Love love love! Quite quiet, I like the treed entrances to the sea, feels like jungle.

    Recomendado 100% a los aventureros que desean explorar la vida marina, es impresionante la cantidad de peces que logras ver a pocos metros de la costa! También sus áreas de pura arena blanca dan un paisaje espectacular con las diferentes tonalidades que nos ofrece el sol! De verdad no pueden dejar de ir!
