Cofresi Beach is tiny. As you walk along the cove, it is just a couple of yards of beach. This is an Atlantic Ocean beach and the surf is full of seaweed.

no one really sits right on the beach because the water comes up so far. There is a higher area on the beach where u sit and then walk down a few steps to the beach

The beach is nice in some parts, with parking on the street. Access is public and you can walk to the Lifestyle Resort beach to the east, but in order to do that, you have to jump across what looks like a discharge from pipe of some kind, draining into the seafront.

Close to room, activities, plenty of bars to visit too. Shopped at the little shops there also. Plenty of cabanas, loungers, pool options.

Perfect place to relax, read, eat lunch and have cocktails, all while sitting in padded lounge chairs and watching and listening to the ocean. Great staff, that deliver all of your food and drinks to you!

This beach was spotless! Lots of plankton in the surf, but it is the ocean. Cabanas were so comfortable and someone changed the linen first thing every morning. The people who worked in the shops, namely Cappuccino (Frailin) and Alehandro are now my personal friends!

A few little shops on the beach. The shopkeepers aren't overly pushy. I bought 5 gorgeous paintings.

Not much to say about the beach. There was lots of seaweed. There are some vendors but they didnt bother us much.

The water was crystal clear and nicely warm. It was great to be able to get cold coconut drinks right there at the beach front. The coconuts were freshly cut right from the tree in front of our eyes!!! Awesome!!!
