Great spot for families and young kids, the bay is very shallow and has a cool little snorkeling spot. Make sure you go by boat, it's much better for snorkeling.

A lovely place, well preserved without commercial facilities other than helpful rentals. Interesting crowd of all types from families to hippies, all enjoying the location and providing a very positive vibe. Really beautiful beach and bay. Strongly recommend your own car to get there.

This was always our secret 'wow' spot with visitors. A great place to feel like s cast away. But lately, even on weekdays, there are lots of people. Harrumph- too good to last I guess.

This is one of my favorite beaches, its crystal clear water, no waves, warm temperature, it is just perfect to relax and chill with a nice cold drink.

CLEAN YOUR TRASH!!!! Amazing beach, weather and view. Too bad for all the trash left behind. There's overpriced chips and some street food. Ceviche and other options available but you save a buck or two by bringing your own food.

We stopped by Balandra beach which is one of the favorite beaches for the locals. Long shallow waters make it a great place for kids. Get there early for a spot under the palapas provided. Very scenic.

This is the nicest and most beautiful beach that I have been too. It's basically perfect. I have no complaints not anything that was lacking.

I do recall seeing some people sleeping on that beach. It would be a great idea.
