Beach
Visit the picturesque and vibrant Playa Punta Popy, a long beach that encompasses everything from fun and games to peace and quiet. Rest beneath the palms on the main strip, where you have bars, restaurants, and water sports businesses at your disposal. Alternatively, consider walking east beyond the point, for a more peaceful spot to enjoy the sea. The beach can get busy with locals enjoying picnics and music on Sunday. However, despite the crowds, a police presence keeps things safe and under control.
