Beautiful beach, clear water, white sand. very close to Santo Domingo, some areas to noise, also was a church close to the beach, where the pastor screaming very loud, many people pass by try to sell stuff or offer a massage, the food is good.

No sex in the Ocean!!! Love this place but Sosua Beach is better. Near Maximo Playa is good but wherever there is music is good there
