“Beautiful Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Clear blue water and shallow for quite a way out which was great for the kids. Rentable beach chairs and umbrellas are everywhere. This beach is sheltered from the rough surf found on the opposite side of the island.

“Average beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Average beach, nothing special plus you have to pay for the beach chair 100 pesos. May be it is better beach on the island but not the best I have ever been.
