This is a beach that attracts lots of surfers. The beach is OK, but nothing special. There are better options in the area.

I like this beach more that the scene at Dominical, quiet and beautiful rocky and sandy. Lots of wildlife in the tide pools. We say different crabs, fish and a small stingray.

The beach is rocky and not a beach to swim unless you are surfing. A few hundred meters down the beach is better for swimming... but the atmosphere in Dominical Beach is terrific. There is a small pizza shop not visible from the beach strip....More

This is a good surfing beach, but I am not a surfer. There are so many beautiful beaches that are less crowded that I would visit before this one. Dominical is a great little town, so if you don't have a time to travel to...More

We walked down here from our hotel in Dominical one morning and were very glad we did. Awesome beach. We were very early and it was almost deserted at the time. Spent a bit of time just exploring. Very nice. Well worth a stop.

The beach is clean and uncluttered by tourists ( June ). Very peaceful and quiet early mornings before artists set up their tables for selling their arts and craft. Beware of bugs! I did not wear any bug spray and was seriously bitten by mosquitos.

Very rocky beach. If it's high tide you can manage some swimming, low tide would be a stretch. We all wore sandles for our one swim at the beach. The rest of the time we swam and played in the waves a little further South...More
