We are visiting Manta Rota for the first time and expected to find wide beaches with glorious sands. We were a bit surprised to find the beach not very wide and crowed every day with people enjoying the sand and water. Perhaps this is the...More

Beautiful beach. Couldn’t fault it. Managed to get free parking close by and had dinner in one of the beach restaurants. Would definitely go back.

Photographs cannot do this beach justice. Long and clean, the area residents take recycling seriously as there are bins and bags along the beach. Plastic jugs along the boardwalk encourage the collection of plastic caps. We walk it each morning and often in the afternoon....More

A beach to avoid at least in August. Awfully crowded and almost impossible to enjoy a relaxed day on the Sun. Water Ok, but everything else was awful.

If you travel with children you won't regret! The beach is huge and the see very calm... Make sure you follow the plates regarding the sunshades and keep the beach clean!

Hi I went to Manta Rota about 10 years ago so it's more than likely changed a lot since then. As I recall there was no supermarket but there was a indoor market that used to sell fruit veg and fresh meat and fish... More
