Is where the lake and the sea join and the sun sets, breath taking only problem is that you can only swim at the lake because it's open sea but it's worth wile to go there, food is excellent, the fish is very fresh as in they fish it every day

I enjoyed my afternoon at Barra Vieja Beach. I ate at the popular Alejos restaurant, the food is amazing and they make a better Coco Loco than Las Brisas La Concha Beach Club (yes, this is true!!) There is horseback riding and if you talk to the security guys he will keep the hagglers away so can enjoy seaside dining... More
