Playa Barrigona

Equally famous for the quality of its gorgeous shores as it is for the celebrity who owns the surrounding property (Mel Gibson), Playa Barrigona is an indisputable beauty off the beaten track. The bay is named "big belly" no doubt because of its rotund shape. While waves are gentle, swimmers should still take care and watch out for strong currents and riptides.
