  • This is a remote location but the beaches are secluded and wonderful. We stayed at the Dreamy Contentmemt.  more »
  • A truly beautiful beach. Nice swimming, quiet & uncrowded. Spectacular west coast sunsets. A laid back lil town with your basic needs, a few stores & eateries.  more »
  • Live close to this beach, and in my opinion it's a very beautiful place, to visit family, in other occasions he had enjoyed much be isolated since it is a fairly large beach. However the latest visits I have noticed that it is much filled with hawkers, drug addicts and other people that while one is resting, will get to ask for that help them or they give them something. Garbage is another negative of this beach, since it lacks sufficient garbage cans and when people are filled with leaves the bags to the side, which easily break them dogs and distributed the garbage on the beach. It is important not only to denounce this type of situations, if not also help to ensure compliance with it.
