  • Amazing beach, perfect to surf... From here you can see a wonderful sunset
  • Well De food is good de weather is just amazing ,the beaches are beautiful, and the people are friendly ,(is just exactly what the doctor recommended,😃
  • Busy and rather loud on a Sunday afternoon. There are several restaurants where you can have a meal or just a cold beer. Currents were pretty strong at the high tide and very few people went in the water. What I admired tge most was how clean the beach was despite all the crowds.
  • Very nice beach! A darker sandy beach, is sand is smooth. It would be great for soccer, but not volleyball. Not very crowded, but a lot of fun things to do. It is very clean, with some leaves and shells that get washed up in the waves. I would recommend if you are looking for a place to chill and read a book!
  • Beautiful beach. Quiet and slower paced than Plays Del Cocoa with much less crowds. Good restaurants on the beach as well as anew blocks up the main street leading in. Well worth it.
