The beach was filled with trash, but the water was clean and clear. I like the fact that there were lots of locals there including families and a group of young friends. The food around here was pretty good. I loved the empanadas from Puerto del Mar.

Went to check out this beach, the water was beautiful but the beach looked very unappealing. It was not clean at all trash and degree all around parking was hard to get and you had to cross traffic to get to the beach I would not recommend this spot.

We were told by a few locals to take a cab here for the best seafood on the island. It was the best food we had period! The service was also wonderful (compared to the island time service we had other places). The locals did say to not be there too much last dark, so we made sure to be... More

If you go on the weekend prepare to stand in line for a long wait. The food is made when ordered so it takes a long time to get your food. It is however, worth the wait. Tastes like it came out of grandma's kitchen. Very rustic and as far away from touristy as you can get. It's certainly an... More

Went to Pinones and visited Carmins, food was great. Steak was awesome, mofongo the rice and beans just like gramma's at home. Pinones has great food everywhere overall.. Seafood salad was also great. The sangria sucked tho.

Neat beach and very rustic food shacks. If you are looking for a 4 Seasons type experience, look elsewhere. Lots of neat, very run-down food shacks, with some surprisingly good food. Had some trouble ordering not being fluent in Spanish, we also got lots of stares as 3 blond touristas, but everyone was friendly, we were the only tourists we... More

We drove out to Pinones looking for a beach that offered calmer waters and fewer crowds, and we ended up spending the entire day in this area. I only wish we could have spent more days here! The beach is clean and quiet. Not many tourists come out this way. We mainly saw local families arriving here mid day with... More
