Very safe, has lifeguard. The surf is calmer here too. Many vendors and places to order drinks or food delivered to your umbrella Walk past Fiesta Americana, look for sign Playa Accesso. Be aware that umbrella rental is 50 pesos. (its not a scam)

We stayed at the hotel right by the rocks, lots of chairs, clean place, prices on beverages were average but we found out that this is where the gay population meet so if you do not get bother by gays modeling around at all times, this place is cool and interesting. All kinds of water sports around.

This stretch of sand is always packed with people, and the beach has some coarse sand, but the views from here are beautiful!!

From Paradise down to the Fiesta Americana many families and friends gather to spend some time at this beach. The rock formation just where the fiesta americana is allows for a pretty calm swim but closer to Paradise restaurante it can be very rough with a strong undertow. Use caution when swimming here.
