The water is warm, which I absolutely love! And what is unbeatable, is the fact that you can see the dolphins every single day! You have shacks, vendors (selling empanadas, grilled cheese, sandwiches, etc), plus surf classes, kayak rentals... Plenty to do!

This is a family friendly beach with low waves, a choice of beach bars (with umbrellas) and - most importantly - dolphins swimming close to the beach!

You will love this! Beware you have to take a long stairway to get to this beach, no easy access and no bathroom whatsoever!
