The view from the beach is beautiful. There were some big waves there when we were there, and the wind was a bit strong, but it was still lovely. The waves were fun to play in, and the beach is sandy unlike many of the other beaches in the area so you could just walk right in and swim without... More

If you are looking for a beach to snorkel or swim this is not a good choice. This beach is great for boarding and surfing. There are restrooms nearby and a couple of bars. We went to Tamboo for drinks and lunch. If you want to relax on the beach and watch the surfers this is a good place for... More

Very nice beach, not many people there when we went! Low key! I will be back! Swimming is decent, waves can get a bit rough, so be careful. Fun to watch all the surfers! Bring your own booze and food or buy from Tamboo. Super fun!

OK for family style surfing and beginners. Good place if you are with kids or teens and are looking for a fairly safe Family style surfing day at the beach. Fair sized sandy beach for little ones and fairly easy in and out of the water for surfing, one of the easier places in Rincon to negotiate the coral upon... More

While I’m partial to my own beach, this place was absolutely breathtaking. Most of the beach is natural and not congested with condos and high-rises and it is kept very clean. There were sections of the beach that were walled off by barriers of sorts, mostly rocks, and it was almost like several smaller, private beaches. The sand is course... More

Thus beach was amazing. It's not very crowded and you can spend the entire day there. With public bathrooms nearby it's easy to have a cheap day on the beach with a picnic. We brought a container and scooped up rocks when the waves went out and found a bunch of seaglass. If you do go to the lighthouse and... More

Large beach. Popular, but not crowded. Good place to relax and watch surfers. Great beach for walking. If you like long beach walks, go Sandy to Antonio's to River Mouth. That combination was our favorite beach walk. We picked up lots of sea glass and shells, too.

Beach was clean. This is not a "shelling" beach. This is definitely for surfers, boogie boarders and strong swimmers. Would be nervous letting small children in the water. Rip tides are very strong here. Week before we arrived 2 people drown. Our first day, 2 women were rescued by a surfer. The rip tide had pulled them, and they were... More

The water was beautiful with great waves. Walked the beach everyday in search of sea glass which was plentiful. Wish it wasn't a beach break - made it hard to just take a dip.

The best beach we found! Spent to whole day there watching surfers and taking in the waves. Large sections of the beach have sand openings unlike other beaches we found just have lots of rocks. Highly recommended
