Playa la virgen, Caldera

3.8
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Caldera
Stranded on the coast in the middle of desert dunes and hills, Playa la virgen attracts visitors with its white sand and calm turquoise waters. A bit remote and difficult to access, this pristine beach focuses on ecotourism. Pick a place on a wooden sun lounger under a straw umbrella, or bring your own beach equipment. If you wish to stay overnight, rent one of the wooden cabins in the surrounding hills overlooking the beach. Amenities include public restrooms, a spacious parking lot, and a restaurant. Bring cash and prepare to spend a day without mobile phone service. Plan to see Playa la virgen and other attractions that appeal to you using our Caldera online travel planner .

  • Cute and beautiful place. The bad thing is that to get to the place it is a lousy way of Earth and in poor condition, you arrive after 30 minutes in car on that road and before a time on asphalt from English Bay. Do you find that it is a private beach, which you have to pay (almost forced the entry of $10,000 for auto light, auto particular) because forced? because make that tremendous pique and then return you? Mmmm not... bone you have and you go to the beach in the place there is nothing to eat (a restaurant but was closed by date) and there is also a business or something to eat... must take food

  • Beach of difficult access, is a particular enclosure and they charge 10 pesos per car, but you can let it arrive and get enough walk to the beach. Beach with fine white sand, long waves and very cold water. I would say that it is a beach to look from above because it looks beautiful.

  • The beach is really beautiful and worth a go, but water is very cold. My son could not even swim normally cold that came to him when the head is submerged. I recommend to go early in the day, there are many fewer people. It is then filled. The only restaurant was closed by parts season in full swing, absurd.
