Not an easy beach to get to, a bit out of the way to get to. We stopped by this small beach at the end of our highlands tour and was really looking forward to some relaxation time by the beach, but we were swarmed...More

Our tour driver took us here. There were very few people as it was late morning on an overcast day. The beach is about a 10 minute walk from the car park. It was very quiet and tranquil.

The walk to the beach is lovely & once you get there you will not be disappointed! Bring bug spray as there are black flies (not sure what they are called) that do bite. They are attracted to wet skin for some reason.

We went to the tortuous sanctuary and then onto Puerto Chino Beach. Very secluded and beautiful beach. A bit of a walk from the main road. Then also saw the Tree House. Really cute.
