This beach is small but full of life. We say 4 rays jumping out of the water while they played hop scotch with each other and then landing with a resounding POP". There are lots of fish in the water to snorkel around with, too.

Excellent margaritas and almgjos chocolates not only fresh in the shell but brought up to the kitchen from the "casa chocolate" right at the waters edge where the clams are kept. Sand was smooth and white and water clear and azure blue. Excellent service and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

The beach is nice but it is very crowded. It is a good spot to finish the day and go to have dinner while watching the sunset.

Local families park their cars and put up their shade and enjoy this beautiful beach all ay Sunday. Far from town if you don't have a vehicle, take a taxi.

Very peaceful location. Had ice cold beers and watched the sunset under a huge palapa. Water was tranquil and colorful. Had the feel of "old" Mexico without the high rise hotels, loud music and beach vendors. Easy access from town.

Extremely calm waters in this stunning bay. Water colours to die for. A couple of eateries tons of easy parking a boat launch and wonderful snorkeling and kayaking. Plan to spend a day or more on this white sandy beach. Untouched gem.
