Coki Beach is a wide, sun soaked swath of palest brown sand and glistening turquoise water.

The aquarium is located at Coki Point. We spent most of the day on the adjacent Coki Beach without ever actually going in the aquarium. (The aquarium is delightful and worth a visit if you've never done it, but we did it years ago and didn't feel like a repeat visit on this occasion.)

Coki Beach is a wide, sun soaked swath of palest brown sand and glistening turquoise water. The beach is anchored at one end by Coki Point, a coral jetti resplendant with tropical fish, and by a rocky peninsula at the other end, marginally less resplendant perhaps due to the lack of locals selling bags of fish food to the tourists, but equally less crowded.

Bring cash. Yeah, that's probably just a universally truism, but in this case the lack of cash forced us to buy drinks and food at the substantially more expensive Coki Point Cafe. If you have cash, there are runners on the beach happy to bring you fresh seafood and drinks for quite reasonable prices.

The water is magical and the barricuda don't bite. Well, they didn't bite me, anyway.
