Beautiful beach formations and marine landscape. Need to make a reservation to access the beach, but do not expect to be alone.

Very special place, although you have to be very aware of tides as it can only be seen complete at low tide. Now we have to book too. Try to get to the places before the rest when the tide goes down so you can get the best pictures. And don't forget you swimsuit and some kind of water shoes!

We spent a couple of hours at the beach, walking on the sand and taking loads of picture. It is a beautiful place where to relax, sunbathe and take a bath. There is a main entrance where you will be asked for a entrance ticket, that can can be purchased online. True is that there is a second entrance, which... More

Breathtaking ancient rock formations along the exquisite blue sea. All ages will be spellbound. *TIPS: 1) you MUST go at low tide, or you will miss it. Check tide tables online and get there a little before. 2) Entrance tickets are now REQUIRED to protect the area. Buy these in advance, online or through travel agent/hotel concierge. After Playa, drive... More

It was like a movie. The whole place is from another world. W did not bring the swim suits so we just walk and got into the caverns. Amazing !! From all perspective. Next time I will bring my swimsuit and get into the water inside the caverns. It was a lot of people but it wasn't crowed. Very well... More

Certainly worth doing though VERY busy but then we are in peak season. We heard it was a free attraction so was surprised when told it was fully reserved online on the day but you can easily get your pass onto the beach from your accommodation in the area or take a bus package if camping etc. Online reservation in...

It's completely free, with organized parking, guards & everything. Check tide schedule before coming and register on website to make sure you get a spot.

The tide was high when we were there in July so couldn't walk around the beach, nevertheless, the rock formations are amazing. We took great pictures from the cliffs.
