Swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, windsurfing, jet skiing, kayaking and other watersports are all available along the waterfront. There are many tidal rock pools at low tide and where crabs, starfish and other marine creatures can be seen. Fishing is popular in the area.

It features mariachi musicians, folk dancing and the crowning of a festival queen.
