How do you get to Redonda Beach?

For these two turns there will be plenty of signs pointing the way. Stay on the paver road until you see the signs on the left hand side for Playa Gigante and Aqua resort, turn left here. Stay on this dirt road for 4km and you will see a very nice security entrance gate on the left with a big AQUA sign.
