  • Very large quiet beach very uncrowded. Not the most beautiful of the island but easy access. The ferry failed at one end of the beach gives him a small cot individual who, in my opinion, does not interfere with the beauty of the place.

  • This beach is where the cargo ferries dock once or twice a week. Best to ask which days the cargo ferries will be there before going to avoid a slightly more movimented day in the beach. Otherwise it ...  more »
  • We spent some good times, and in early December, we were there almost alone... the water is enough calm (short waves) and it's still little bit deep for a good distance. Like all beaches on the island, there is no service... that's a shame! There are remains of old hotels in the background, suggesting that the beach has seen better days.

  • Beautiful sunrise
  • Turquoise waters. *****
  • Ideal to take a walk by its long extension and learn a little of the beginnings of the tourist development of the island and see what remains of the Hotel Contadora facilities which are in ruins the beach is crystal clear and calm water... Devoid of services and maintenance

Where to stay in Contadora Island

Perhaps the most low-key of the island's accommodations sit close to the ferry terminal, where you'll find hotels and guesthouses with simple rooms but prime beach access. Look to the beaches in the southwest of the island for more hotels to choose from. They range from upscale boutique properties, to simpler and more budget-friendly options.
