3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Too crowded, beach is not too flat and not a great beach if you like to power walk. If you like to go to the beach and feel like you are in NYC, then this is the beach for you.

“Busy and beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

My wife and I spent most of our beach time at Palm because it was right outside our hotel. It was pretty crowded because Palm sits along most of the major hotels. That said, it really was not that loud, and still very relaxing. Most of the major water sports occur outside Palm so visually, so you will see sailboats and other things in the distance.

What I liked about this beach was that it was convenient, beautiful and you could grab a beer at one of several places, so it has a little bit of everything. At night, you can go to bar on the beach for some live music. Very good times were had.

“Clean white sand, cool blue water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Get there early if you want to get a palapa! Only complaint is that it gets crowded quickly - both on the beach, and in the water! There are also a good amount of things to do... speed boat rides, paddle boarding, jet ski, etc.

A beautiful beach with plenty to do. Shopping, white sand and a calm sea. It has it all! I recommend staying to watch the sunset, no words can describe it!
