A nice quiet uncrowded large beach at the end of the Malecon. Very basic though. Bring your own umbrella. No change rooms. Could not see any toilet facilities but did not check out the whole beach. Peaceful, no vendors.

Considering we were here during Easter weekend, the highest number of tourists, the beaches were not overly crowded and clean. A few food vendors with great restaurants across the street.

Playa Olas Altas is a great place for a walk. It is located in Centro. Lots of statues, a salt water pool, cliff divers and the continuation of one of the longest Malecons in the world.
