“Arashi Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Nice laid back beach. Good snorkeling to the left (southeast). We had a cab drop us off and arranged for a pickup time. You need to bring a change of clothes because cabs will not pick up wet passengers. No bathroom. Chair rental ($5/each) and a snack/soda/snowball truck.

“on a calm day, real nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

because it is near the north end, it can get a a little breezier and the waves can kick up some. but some of the nicest sand, and there is a new parking lot and several palapas. a very pretty spot to spen the afternoon.

“Scenic, beautiful and lots of waves, but beware of trash”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was one of the more scenic beaches and because of it's location it gets a lot of beach washed coral and sponges. Unfortunately it was crowded and there was a lot of trash including broken glass on the beach. This could have been because we went right after New Years, but it seems consistent with other reviews. This was more of a local beach than one for Tourists. There is also no public bathroom, but there is an icecream truck that circles through fairly often.

“Nice little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Also a public beach -peacefully tucked away in a pristine neighbourhood. Sandier bottom than Palm beach near the hotel strip the sand here gradually descends into the ocean. The clear blue waters inviting!
