  • Good sandy beach, is an artificial beach since they made a wave breaker to avoid the current and brought sand so as not to trip over stones, it is windy, does not have much waves is recommended for children and people with disabilities

  • Nice little girl. It can also be accessed by (buses) or guagua, in only about 20". The guagua leaves you on the same beach and you take it right there for your return. Recommended ride

  • Beautiful beach with free parking
  • Very different by the beaches you find in the south of the island. Worth visiting. White sand and more clear water...
