Great place to visit, amazing views, but I was never sure if the beach was safe for taking a bath. Also, it would be nice to have clearly indicated that it is a place for optional clothing.

Only that it was cloudy but am sure on a sunny nice day this would be a nice beach to enjoy. About three miles of dreadful unpaved road and only realised that this beach is located behind a villa we once rented in playa blanca. So to avoid three miles of a road mayhem head to marina rubicon then head... More

This stretch of coast has 7 stunning NATURAL, UNSPOILED beaches that link when the tide is out and are a mix of long stretches and smaller coves when the tide is in. This beach has two cafes at the top of the cliff path down- first one is great the other is awful. We walked over the rocky landscape to... More

Going here means you have to travel a bumpy road, but it's not impossible! You have to pay a little price (€3,- per car) to get to this hidden part of the Island. But once you arrive, you have a stunning view of the beaches. You can walk your way down to one of the beaches and enjoy your day.

The Papagayo beach was small and overcrowded (a midday in November), firstly we considered to spend an afternoon there but we did only a short walk and went away. I did not notice any shower on the beach, either. Other beaches in the area looked ok, however we did not try. And yes, the road leading to the beach area... More

There are about 5 different beaches here. The only issue is you have to travel quite a bit on a bumpy long track to reach them. The beaches here are lovely though. The beach bar is great to sit and have a drink watching the sun set. Good prices as well.

Good place to appear there in the morning however nothing to do during the day while seeing a lot of people roasting on the sand. Didn't like that several women (of different ages) decide to walk back and forth topless. The road to this place is paid (3 euro per car) and is tough for car suspension, probably will be... More

Lovely beach made up of coves, 15 min walk from papaya to hotel over sand ash and rocks. Worth it, driving to it is down a dirt track with a toll payable, take your time doing that.
