The beaches here have always been good but the new walkway has made life so much easier. Instead of trudging through hot shifting sand the raised wooden walkway is really high quality. Pity they haven't continued it to Puerto Cabopino

Kids love the contrast between sand and rocks, enjoyed catching fish in the rock pool. Sea not as salty as Dominican Republic so didn't inflame my daughters skin.

There was nothing that stood out about this beach. My family was ready to leave within 30 minutes of arriving.
