Doña Paula is not much of a beach. A small stretch of beach, a slightly elevated viewing platform, a crumbling statue of Doña and Paula, and a street market for not so good quality t shirts, souvenirs etc.

It was just a trip to make a remembrance of the earlier visits. But this time due to construction activities, we had to walk a bit. Further the rain made it more disappointing.
