This beach is beautiful. It is rocky so you may want to wear water shoes. Bathrooms are very clean. Chairs are available as well as snorkel gear. Snorkeling was awesome here. Bar was a bit slow but drinks were good.

Yes there are fees at this beach, but the maintenance and infrastructure are top notch. Good sand for kids to play in, swim platform is at an accessible distance for everyone and snorkelling is pretty good. Lots of fish (we even saw octopus and sea snakes) and shallow enough that all ages can spend a good amount of time in... More

This beach is nice for anyone who doesn't mind to have dutch people around and hear dutch all day long. It's a 'see and be seen' spot and everyone who likes dutch bitterballen and snacks can feel comfortable at this place!

Porto Mari is a beautiful beach with clean change facilities and a beach snack bar for a convenient lunch. The snorkeling was just OK, but overall this was a great location.

We rented a car for several days and wanted to be sure to spend the day at Playa Porto Mari, where we had scuba dived in years previous. This time we only brought our snorkeling gear. This is a great beach, fantastic for shallow and deep water snorkeling. There are beach chairs and umbrellas available for rent and the bathrooms... More

This beach was great for a day trip. It cost to rent chairs and to stay on the beach but it is worth it for the view, water and atmosphere. The snorkeling isn't bad - playa lagun is better for that sort of thing, but all in all this was one of my favorite beaches on our vacation.

Lovely beach, definitely worth a visit. I wasn't impressed with the food at the restaurant though, simple menu and the restaurant didn't look very clean. However I would not hesitate to return as the beach is great and this is the main reason for coming here.

This is a pay beach, roughly $5 for entrance and a lounge chair. I love this beach and the atmosphere. I was there with a buddy of mine, he hated it! It is not for everyone; it is a very natural beach and many rocks. There are no motorized crafts in the water and the entrance fee pays for the... More
