good for paraguay, since there are no ocean beaches. nice and clean with life guards. we were there in winter so not many people, we could imagine how this place comes to life in the summer months. very clean and tidy and well maintained.

Ideal for families. Good room for running, biking, beach wandering, and just hanging out. No public bathrooms in sight or at least not obviously so.

The beach is small and I think at weekends during the summer it is standing room only. Good restaurants and even better toilets
