“Too much activity”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The water was foggy, you couldn't see your feet in shallow water. The ocean floor was mushy & slimy. There is lots of water activities going on at this beach. I think that because of all the boats, jet skis, etc. it's polluted the water. Also, the beach is roped off so with all the people in the same still water, the suntan oils & sunscreen lotions build up & makes it look oily. I was very disappointed in this beach.

“Good for water sports”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

The beach is very crowded in the end of the year. The water is not so good, a bit dirty. The avantaje is that you can do a lot of activities right on the beach. Parasail, jetsky, and more.

“Terrific beach!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Stopped here on a cruise...by far the best beach! Lots of parasols and lounge chairs to rent (not too expensive) next to washrooms, restaurants and hotels. It was great for the whole family and the sand it just wonderfully soft!
