Great beach and excellent cafes. Boating and surfing at its finest. Just a hop skip and a jump to hotels, boardwalk and boutiques.

Get your work out by walking this fabulous long sandy beach, eat at the Restaurant "La Perla" Breakfast , Lunch or Dinner at spectacular sunsets and spend the day under an umbrella with a lounge chair and Camastro. "Las Tiritas" (thinly cut raw fish, marinated in lemon juice and cilantro with pink onion) are excellent.
