“Incredible sand, clear water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Great beach for families as no rocks, sand is cool and water is shallow for some time. Check out the different beach houses as only some have bathroooms.

“magical beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Our taxi driver recommended to visit sunset grill and was the most fantastic spot. We had drinks and appetizers at a table in the sand and watched the waves roll in. Perfect.

“Fun beach!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

We spent a fun afternoon at this beach, ordering drinks and people watching. We had the use of beach chairs if we spent a certain amount on food or drinks, which is a pretty good deal!

“Amazing Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Beautiful beach with soft sand and warm waters. We arrived early-like to beat the crowds and by gone by noon. Beach is public but if you want to use the loungers you're looking at 100-150 pesos each. Can't wait to go back!

“Great beach but crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

The sand is lovely and you can swim without the kelp around your feet.
It is a crowded location for people, chairs, lounges, restaurant, bars and vendors walking selling their wares. It is a fun atmosphere if this is what you are looking for and close to Centro
