“Excellent beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Lovely long beach with clean sand and clear seas. You can rent sun loungers from the hotels cheaply and you can also get food and drinks.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Worth a visit. Beautiful white sand. Crystal clear, warm water. Not many people around. Can have food and drink brought to you. Costs 16 CUC in a taxi from Trinidad. Lovely way to spend a day.

Cleaning and transportation are a problem. Not always the bus is available. Not always the beach is clean. Most of the time there a re people begging or selling all sort of things. Excuse me!!!! Tourist go to the beach to rest, and enjoy. Watch out !!!!

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Perfect white sand, crystal clear sea, access to a bar nearby if needed, and easy $4cuc return ride from Trinidad in the tourist bus. Playa Ancon is a lovely place to relax and enjoy the warmth of the Caribbean sun. With waters filled with sealife and a reef just 500meters from the shore, it has everything you could need or want on a trip to the beach.

We were warned that thieves operated on the thinner East end of the beach, so its worth being cautious and spending your time near the sun loungers; safety in numbers!
