Out of season only about 10 people on the beach (all adults). No facilities. Warnings of dangerous rip tides, although waves appeared quite calm when we were there and one person was swimming. Why go there? Stunning scenery all round! Flat sand suitable for beach volleyball. Although I was warned that it gets crowded in summer. Probably not a very safe beach for young/weak swimmers.

Very nice area, we approached from the saltflats first, then drove around to San Jose and visited Monsul and Genoveses beaches, the latter was the largest and best.

If youre in the area its worth a detour.…

On a walking holiday of Cabo de Gato came to Monsul but didn’t stay due to the 20mph+ winds. Better to gaze at from afar than end up with a face full of sand!

Really beautiful beach. The road getting there was really bumpy though! We hiked up the mountain from the beach.

A bit of a dusty route along gravelled road to get here but the beach is great and out of season pretty quiet, no facilities at this time of year so bring your own food and drink.
