It's a bit of an easy hike, or if you have a Jeep you can drive in. Very secluded and picturesque - it's what you think of when you think Caribbean beach.

Totally had this place to ourselves for the better part of the day. Quiet, secluded, and so beautiful. Walked out to where the waves were crashing and to do a little stacking sculpture with my son. Just enough shade for lunch and breaks from the...More

This beach is also called Playa Pata Prieta. The entrance to the water is not steep. Calm water. I tried snorkelling on the left side but didn't see any fish. Nice beach for walking. No public facilities, but some shady trees.

The place is pretty overcrowded, even in the low season. The drive is bumpy and almost impossible for some island cars. When you finally reach the parking area, its probably so crowded it'll be like trying to shove an elephant into a very small box....More
