A nice beach but there are others just as nice in Ihla Grande. Huge waves and can be busy but has a life guard. You will need to bring lunch as all you can buy is crisps etc

The beach is very popular as it is supposed to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - and it is very beautiful. But nevertheless it was not too crowded and still very enjoyable as it is only accessable by hiking.
