“close, nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Nice beach to sit or surf. The currents can be rather strong so stay close to the lifeguards. Lots of great shops near the restaurant that is on the beach.

“Beautiful beach in an idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Gentle waves and water that was perfect to cool down in without being cold. There were enough shady spots to accommodate those who are not sun worshippers.

I've been to lots of CR beaches and this one is SICK! When you think of postcard tropical beauty this is it. Great surf, beautiful.
