Too many people trying to sell you any kind of things, as I suppose everywhereverybody else. Windy enough to stand a temperature of about 34°. Nice restaurant (Paradis) can serve good food on the...

Our hotel was a block away from the beach. We walked to the beach to take a walk at sunset. It's a beautiful view of the bay. We also went there in the morning. The water was calm enough for us to paddle board. There were also people using jet skis. Both can be rented right on the beach. The... More

A very nice beach, nice sand, clean water, beautiful views. I agree, however, with other Reviewers that getting there may be difficult, depending on the time of the day and a day itself.

Too bad. The water is clean, but gets deep quickly. The sand is great. The other beach goers are fine. 90% of the businesses seem like they are stuck in the past and just wringing out dollars.

just a few minutes walk from Las Torres Gemelas. 50 pesos to rent chairs and umbrella. lots of vendors walking by, plus the many bars and restaurants - can order and they bring to you. this beach also has a protected area encircled with floats, safer for children.

Condesa is where most locals go instead of the beaches directly attached to the hotels. It is a little more quiet but really pretty and the water is really warm too! Nice beach for the family!

The beach is so nice here! There are quiet stretches to one side, and in the area where there are hotels, there are services which offer jets rental, diving, etc. A perfect beach! (sometimes you have to look out for rogue waves from the tide, but that's anywhere!)

Thank BeaBC
