Watch your valuables – sadly, Punta Galera is known for theft from both cars and beach bags, given the lack of amenities and people around, so travelling light is recommended.
Yoga and meditation enthusiasts should arrive early in the morning to score the best flat rocks on which to practice, and make the most of the silence before beachgoers begin splashing about.
There's a naked guy selling beer, water and drinks from his cool box – he’s a bit of a local legend and given that he’s the only person on the rock selling year after year, he’s probably quite rich!
Be careful of jellyfish (in Spanish “medusas”) in July and August, as there’s no lifeguards or first aid anywhere nearby to help.
