“A local thing”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Its very pretty and you get a great view of the Arecibo Lighthouse. Is very much a local thing that attracts the residents from surrounding areas, but is worth taking a look at.

“Overcrowded and dangerous”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Should be aware that there are high waves and strong currents in this beach, the ocean view is awesome but the area is not clean and beachgoers attitude is not the best. There are no showers or restrooms available and there is no security for your car.
