Playa Minas is located to the south of the popular Playa Conchal. It is quite a hidden virgin beach that is simply beautiful. Some years ago there were bauxite mines at both beach ends.

Some people will want to also enjoy spear fishing here but it is definitely the snorkeling that stands out the most. Those snorkeling here can easily enjoy majestic turtles that are agile and elegant as you swim underwater. This location is known as a turtle beach.
