“Not the best beach, but draws a nice crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

This is a very small beach, but it draws a nice active crowd at night. Overall I liked it.

“Beautiful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Go to Pocitas beach, its only a 15min MotoTaxi ride and the beach is so much cleaner, and nicer than Mancora. Completely recommend!

“Peaceful, calm and away from the mayhem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

It was simply beautiful. It was calm, peaceful and often you feel like you had the beach to yourself (but I was there during low season, so maybe it's more crowded during high season). But, it is much more beautiful than the beach in actual Mancora which isn't exactly pretty, but just great for surfing.
