Bring bread or bananas and feed the fish! This beach is the nicest I've ever seen. I did the 24cuc tour and it was well worth it.

I cant say enough! This beach was breathtaking, the water was crystal clear blue waters, the snorkeling was great because of how clear it was. The white sandy beach was like walking on flour. You did have to pay for a chair but it was cheap and super worth it. The food at the restaurant was delicious!

My friend and I walked to Pilar Beach from iberostar Playa Pilar - It is only about a 20 minute walk away. The long beach is absolutely gorgeous with clear, turquoise water. There are lots of chairs, umbrellas and beds to rent with the fee including drinks for some. There is a restaurant and washroom onsite that seems quite reasonable.... More

I cannot explain how beautiful this beach was it was a twenty minute walk from our hotel and what a gem it is. The sand is so soft its like walking on talkum powder. The bar is reasonably priced as well.

This is definitely one of the most amazing beaches I have ever seen. Turquoise water, Caribbean feeling for sure. Only downside is that you have to be aware where you lay down, unfortunately more and more tourist are taking over this place and its original secret spot and feeling of natural paradises slowly shifts to a overcrowded and loud tourist...
