Just great beach with enough activity close by to keep you interested. Do visit if you're in Punta. The beach can get packed, but early mornings its pretty open!

Between Playa Los Inglese (South) and Playa Brava (North-Dos Dedos Art) you will find this likewise nice beach. Perhaps the most interesting beach for people watching dynamics. It seems to be a favorite of vendos and locals alike. See it.
