“very pretty beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

long crescent, nice sand. A good beach to walk, nice and flat with plenty to look at along the way. There seems to be a lot of opportunity for para sailing, looks like fun!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The beach is a long cresent with beautifully maintained sand and few vendors so I found it tranquil and lovely. The surf at the south end of the beach is just right for those of us that don't like big waves and the surf at the north end is big enough for some surfboarding. All in all, a perfect beach.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

This beach has excellent waves to play in, not to rough, but just enough to make it fun. Water is warm, plenty of beach room.

“Miles of great beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Fun waves, warm water, some undertow and rip tides so care is needed. Best parasailing in Mexico! We loved it.
