The beach though little dirty compared to other beaches is popular for water sports and boating. Boat trips into the Mondovi River also hosts another tourists attraction which is spotting the wild dolphins. These trips also extend up to the base of Aguada fort and present magnificent view of the fort, Aguada prison and the lighthouse (usually one hour boat ride). The busy mornings spent in boat trips are followed by quiet and tranquil afternoons and evenings. Reis Magos Fort and Reis Magos Church are situated close to Coco Beach which forms added tourist attractions.
