Things to do at Cococape
The hotel offers many activities like scuba diving, snorkeling or fishing (squids only) from the pier at sundown or early morning.
Snorkeling is a must, admiring the fauna and flora around the pier, rich in coral and all kinds of fishes. There’s a big Pufferfish (bubble fish as they call it) living right at the end of the pier and with a little observation, you cannot miss this cute and curious creature, whether standing from the pier or snorkeling around.
You will also notice several buoys not far from the pier, snorkel there and you’ll have the surprise to discover a wrecked car, truck, boat and motorbike with a parabolic antenna covered with colorful corals and surrounded by beautiful fishes. The best time to see it is at low tide around 9 am in the morning…prepare your GoPro and get your best footage.
They also offer boat services to visit the island around and have a rental service for board and kayaks.
The Pier of the hotel is also home to the Blue Pearl Bar with the best bartender on the island, the cocktails are perfectly done and don’t lack taste. and at sunset, the bar area and deck chairs will fill up with people coming to enjoy their favorite cocktails with the sunset.
The pier location is unique as you can both enjoy sunrise and sunset.
Relax at their swimming pool and bar or enjoy their massage service.

i have to say everything was perfect during the stay and I got a really amazing feeling of being far away getting a swim and snorkeling in the morning and afternoon in the crystal clear water from the pier.
