“Beautiful”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Sun Bay is a beautiful beach with lots of space to spread out. The water is aqua clear, the sand is clean and the palms sway in the breeze. Theere were horses grazing near the beach this year. We hadn't seen them on the beach area in past visits. Driving is rough, so you need to go slow and not mind the jarring ruts along the way. It is worth a day of your time to relax and enjoy this beach.

“Outstanding beach”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

This Beach is just beautiful! The water calm and clear. The view is photo perfect. It is only a $2 entrance fee and well worth it. Definitely a place not to miss.

“Quiet water very crowed”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is probably a good family beach. Quiet water and some vendors present and showers available. Too crowded for my tastes.

“beautiful beach”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a beautiful beach and very close if you are staying in popular Malecon or Esperanza area. There was hardly anyone when we went there at the time of sunset. The sand was soft and water temperature perfect. We got some excellent sunset pictures.

“Sun and sand.”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

If you are looking for a place close to town to sun bathe this is it. You can walk to in in 15 to 20 minutes down a little unimproved road or drive to it and park for 3$. There is a camping area with an outdoor shower that you can use to wash the salt water off you before walking back to town. There is nothing to see under water so don't bother bringing your snorkel. The sea grass grows too close to the beach on the wings. The center of the beach is the best for swimming and you need to look to make sure there is a green flag flying from the rangers location as they watch for jelly fish and such. If you are looking to Snorkel close to town go to the west end of Malacon in Esperanza, but watch out for stepping on Urchins or you will ruin your day.
