Beautiful beach, but with a lot of people at the beach bars. Good for families because of the calm waves.

We took a buggy ride to Muro Alto, and it was very beautiful! It's not the most beautiful beach I've ever been to, but it's definitely worth a visit. There were little crabs on the sand, which were very cute.

Go on the low tide, amazing experience, especially if you have small kids as water is nice and warm and at knee level.

Nice, warm and clean water.Clear and vast sand.The sun is always present. Perfect for pictures, walking and running. There are some nice hotels around where you can eat and have some tropical drinks.

Beautiful but it is not prepared to receive tourist. You can get a cab is more reasonable then Bug or jeep. Get all your meal and sandwiches to spend the day around it worth go early and get back in the afternoon avoid bugs they are not fair price or service.

The beach is beautiful, some resorts and big hotels in the area. Not very crowded, so you can enjoy with privacy
