This is a very beautiful beach. The ocean is picturesque. It is very wide with lots of visitors. The sun is great. The water is cool. It is a great place to walk along the water. The sunsets are spectacular.

Cavancha has a lot of space so it didn’t feel too crowded, even at peak times. Lots of rentals available and plenty of vendors along the beach.
