“Excellent location for lunch after diving El DuDu”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stopped here after diving the cenotes, on our way back to Cabarete. Thankfully, our dive center knew which kitchen to ask for (#12) and we had a delicious meal and the BEST pineapple drinks. We meant to ask for the drinks with rum, but there must have been a miscommunication because they were definitely non-alcoholic but they were sublime. A few of us had fish, a few chicken and one lobster - nothing was a disappointment. We ate on the beach which is beautiful - lovely view. there was a lot of people coming up to our table trying to sell us a variety of items but left us alone after a 'no gracias'.

“Top 10 Beach”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

According to Conde Nast Traveler, this is one of the top ten beaches in the world and once you visit it you will know why. Beautiful sweeping golden sand beach, rolling waves and some of the nicest food/beverage vendors I've ever encountered.

“Clean large beach”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

A great place for lunch, ask for Carlos, #1. Enjoy the dogs. I've named them all; Arena , Vagabundo, Lobo and Tony Montana. They love the chix scraps.

“big beach, nice waves”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Great beach with waves big enough to jump into and under. Be careful with the current though. Have one of the beach guys bring you a table and chairs for no charge.
Hawker level 3 out of 5.
