Popular I suppose because of the limited number of beaches in the area, but it is a small beach, rocky, especially after the recent hurricane damages to the area. Services, such a refreshment stalls are limited, and restaurants are essentially poor at best. Playa Juragua...More

We rented a scooter in Santiago wanting to get out of town and in nature. Because of this beach we almost ended up renting a place on the east mountain side. Some amazing houses overlook this mighty amazing bay. But everything was occupied. This is...More
