Just gorgeous. Amazing beach, turquoise crystal clear water. Can see fish in shallow waters, water much calmer then Playa Sirena. Had an amazing time, were here 3 times on our 5 day visit and stayed until 5. Walked along the shore from Sirena to Paraiso twice, beautiful just stunning.

This beach right next to Sirenas is gorgeous and very few of the local resort guests go there because the facilities are minimal. There are lounge chairs and a bar.Accesbile on foot if you are a good walker, or by the local shuttle Pack some snacks and spend a few hours, the swimming is the best. Especially for young children,... More

Imagine soft powdery sand so white it dazzles you, lapped gently by clear blue water, a sheltered lagoon surrounded by a long sandbar : playa paraiso is indeed a paradise. Really beautiful but can often be rather busy with day trippers.

~~~ Beautiful beach. A must see :) Bring your own soft cooler for a boxed lunch from the hotel and some water. The loungers are not in the greatest shape, but they serve the purpose :)

The beach and the sandbar were beautiful. You can walk from the edge of the beach to the sandbar and leisurely stroll along the sandbar. The lounge chairs are few and are pretty crappy. But the scenery is stunning.

If you have kids, this is the beach for you to go to. It is super shallow and you can walk out for ever and it never gets deep. There are little fish swimming by your feet in very clear water

My favourite beach is latest casualty of global warming, shifting sands, high tides and rising sea levels. Sand is gone to an alarming rate, new peninsula is closing in on the beach, few palm trees are gone as well as few trees. I was there in late October and early November 2014 and whole place is hard to be recognized... More

Talcum powder sand with water the bluest of blue. Absolute heaven. The serenity of the beach is mesmerizing. Go early in the morning as the Palapas go fast and shade is a must or go later on in the day to ensure your shade. Bring some drinks, you'll need them. There is a bar on site but it can get... More

Absolutely stunning, love the fact that its clothing optional, adult beach. The cove is beautiful, its the perfect place to sit and read a book or lounge in the calm water.
