I have seen many beaches, but none a beautiful as this one. The water is pristine, the sand is of the purest white. Sun rises and sunsets are spectacular..

Alot of crab hiding in the sand, need to go far from the beach to be in deep water. Not much fish in the area. Beach needed to be cleaned, a lot of plastic bottles and waste on the beach.

This beach is great. Keep in mind they do not have facilities to change clothes and chairs and umbrellas are 2 CUC each. The water is warm and the waves are great my kids loved it.
