Have heard about Karakter for several years but never was able to find it. This year, it was our mission and we succeeded. Located at the end of a somewhat sketchy road next to the runway is a hidden gem. We had breakfast there a couple of times for $8-$10 per person for an "American" kind of breakfast including eggs, bacon, toast and fruit. The added bonus is that, if you are eating or drinking here, you can use the beach chairs for free. The beach is lovely and the water is fairly calm and easy to get in and out of. The bathrooms are immaculate and there is even a shower. We will definitely be back again next year!

The only thing I can say is - come early and stay late. Tuff to get a spot on the weekend; as the locals all come here. So obviously you know it's the spot if locals flock here.

They have a great menu selection and very speedy service. Sit in a beach chair and they will bring you ice buckets of beer and food; or take a break at the table and have your lunch.

The beach is very nice; with average sized surf and a nice sandy shore.

Karakter is a beach bar with great atmosphere. During the day is alive, full of people, in the evening is very romantic. You are sitting on the beach with a fire on Your table. Food is great.

We see it rated so highly. We walked down from where we were staying for lunch, a small hamburger with 4 or 5 chips.. $12. It's on the beach.. But I am not sure we would go back.
