I didn't find anything special about this beach, Our hotel beach was just as nice. (And a lot closer to my room) Cute little bar on the beach, bring towels to sit on as you must pay to use the loungers.

This is a must go too if your staying anywhere in Cayo Coco. If your looking for a nice clean, clear beach with crystal clear water during a beautiful day then this is the one...No dislikes so far as every visit never turned us away from going back...A lot of rumors of possible resorts to open up near that area...

...for about another year until the first resort is complete. That would be an excellent resort to check out because the beach is gorgeous!!

It's okay, the beach is short, the tourists treat it like a big trash can and there's not enough staff there to keep it clean...

It was an average beach that was nothing special to us. You had to fight to keep your chairs. It was a constant problem just to relax. Water was rough that day so it wasn't crystal clear. I wouldn't go back.

Awesome food at the restaurant. Don't think it's right to charge for a lounge chair tho. I always tip but not when I feel like I'm made to

I must say that this is the nicest beach I've been to, if you have a chance to go to Pilar, do not hesitate.

Took the tour that was offered by the hotel. We were picked up by a large air conditioned bus and driven to Pillar Beach. As part of the package we were given 2 drinks tickets, a lounger and lunch., The lunch was excellent, consisted of lobster and chicken. Great day at a beautiful beach.

Our trip to Pilar Beach was very well organized. The area was like a dream. The beach was spotless, the water clear and calm. We spent a great day enjoying the water and relaxing on the beach and enjoying the sun. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly and the food enjoyable.
