    Excellent view to the sea, you can see the coast. It cost a bit to upload, but it is entertaining especially for families.

    I loved having them known, although we did it from the viewpoint. You can also access other hand and upload them. If you have good physical condition... later. the only downside is that they are building to full departments along but the dunes are disappearing should not be protected?

    I lost my time ... I don't know if because we're Brazil, we've been in many beaches ... terrible! Nothing interesting! Many buildings around, horrible! Sounds like a bunch of construction sand.

    Nice views of the ocean and surrounding town. I went after new years, so I hope/assume it's usually cleaner. Sandboarding is cheep and fun! But don't forget to grab some wax for the board.

    It offers a very good view of the ocean. You can do quite some activities like sand boarding (equipment available for hire on spot) of you like. The place is often quite windy with a lot of sand blowing, so maybe something to protect the eyes will make be helpful.

    Sanboarding for only $1000 pesos/hour is an absolute blast. Wear gym shoes (sand is hot) and stay a few hours!

    Amazing place to watch the sunset over the sea and do some really cheap sandboarding. Pretty amazing!
