(140+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Rugged terrain and sandy hills overlook Playa Santa Marianita, a wide, gently sloping beach boasted as the most popular destination among kite and wind surfers in the area, providing suitable conditions all year round. Several kite schools operate here and the spacious and uncrowded beach creates conditions ideal for beginners. At times the ocean experiences a moderate shore break, so you can surf or simply enjoy the waves. Wooden huts with straw roofs line the beach to offer food, drinks, and shade tents.

  • This beach is large enough. There are several very rich places to eat, it is safe. The only thing is there is no transport to get there must pay a pickup truck or go by private car. It is very close to Manta.
