“Great Beach, Safe Surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

My family with 3 kids loved this beach as it wasn't as rough as Santa Teresa and was really safe for surfing and swimming. We came here at sunset two times, so beautiful.

awesome shells, awesome walk, beautiful beach! Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of Sta Teresa. Loved the seclusion, how clean it was. Lovely
