“Perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and private beach time -- quiet”
Review of Media Luna Beach

Owner description: This appropriately-named beach, curving like a half moon, is shallow enough to walk out 40 feet.
Reviewed April 6, 2014

On down a very bumpy road from Sun Bay is Media Luna. There are no bathrooms and not much shade. The sand, however, is very fine white flour-like powder and super soft. It's a smaller bay than Sun Bay and is so shallow that at low tide you can walk about 1/4 mile out. There are schools of little Angel-looking fish within 10 feet of the shore (in knee-deep water). Along the rocks to the east there are tons of crabs, snails, urchins, and other creatures. You can easily enjoy the wildlife even without a snorkel.

If you are walking, it's about 30+ minutes from Sun Bay, but if you're driving it's a bumpy 5-7 minutes. Given that it's harder to get to than Sun Bay, it's less frequented, quieter, and more private. There are several picnic shelters that offer shade and seating. The only significant draw-back is the lack of bathrooms. If you need to use the bathroom you have to walk quite a ways to find a bush to go behind, or you have to drive back out to Sun Bay.

It's gorgeous, but there are fewer of the iconic palm trees here than at other beaches.

Beautiful blue water, very calm surf and nice white sand. Very secluded and best to take a taxi or drive, but roads are very washed out in some areas, so a jeep or 4-wheel is best. No facilities.

Was perfect. You can walk miles on the ocean and the depth does not increase. Perfect waters. Very pretty beach. Getting there was bumpy but worth it. Much better than Navio.

This beach is excellent for swimmers and non-swimmers alike, for adults as well as children. It also affords some shade if you don't have the benefit of an umbrella.
