This is our favourite beach because it is less busy than the rest and close to where we stay. You can snorkel right from shore. Did find it much busier this trip with all the buses and tours they are bringing there now. Be prepared...More

I did not go scuba diving, yet the friend I was traveling with did. She really enjoyed it and said there were some beautiful fish and coral. The beach bar/beach house was OK. They charged for the restroom and the beach chairs.

We stopped at Arashi Beach on a tour with De Palm Tours. David and Albert brought us to this beach for about 45 minutes, or so. Awesome beach. We snorkeled and there were several fish around the reef. Great stop.

Arashi goes on forever. You can hang out by the beach shack grab a beer and palapa or go down much further for privacy. In different nooks you can sometimes find a divi tree for shade or bring a strong wind resistant umbrella or tarp...More

Public beach at Arashi Beach. We were able to park past the big parking lot along the beach front. We spent the next several hours on Arashi Beach, overall the beach is large and it is easy to get in the water to cool off....More

I did not see any dogs and I didn't see any signs saying no dogs, however, it is a turtle breeding area which is protected so I would suggest you do not take your dog there.
