The area's resorts offer every modern amenity imaginable, while the beach itself is well equipped for a range of water sports, like snorkeling and scuba diving.

  • The beach is calm and crystal clear. Very beautiful. Worth knowing and stay in a hotel by the sea.

  • Nice but a tourist. white sand, turquoise waters, as in the photos. not far from Havannatól. But there is also a Marasul and Nice.

  • Wonderful. In the morning you don't have waves, and it's perfect. The afternoon starts, but still beautiful. It's so transparent water that looks like a swimming pool. I visited in Oct/2018. The beach was empty. And it's super secure.
