Sadly when we were there it was a rather dirty beach. There were plastic bottles floating in the water and other debris too. It had obviously been washed up on the shore by the sea and no one was bothering to clean it up. Shame....More

This was a fun beach we took a boat into port and drove to on two separate days. The bay is secluded and peaceful. The people are friendly and fun place to stay for an hour or two.

Access is off hwy 200 then take the winding dirt road down to the beach. Parking available and several palapa style Mexican restaurants right on the beach. Food is good and inexpensive as this is a popular place for families.
