A very nice beach. But since the sun is too strong between 11 and 3 it is better not to choose a beach that takes such a long ride. The shadow at Alegria is not free. You have to pay for a hut. The beach has beautiful sand and sea. It could be cleaner. We found so much garbage. We... More

We just looked around and left. So many people sitting around in the huts making noise, drinking, have the stereo on full power and "singing" karaoke. Plastic dirt everywhere. No way to sit anywhere and enjoy the beach. The people from the houses around suggested to return on a non weekend day. We will do... It's not so bad since... More

Due to its isolated location, this beach is so peaceful, quiet, clean and simply paradisiac! No buildings or hotels around, just sand, coconut trees, and a beautiful turquoise ocean awaiting for you. You basically own the beach. It's... More

We rode a motorcycle around almost all the island, and this is the best beach we found. You just have to cross a palm tree hood from the main circumferencial road.

the sand incline must be over 30 degrees and it's not a very firm ground so that walking can be a great challenge. You can go easily tired in your 20 meter walk. I tried to get as far as I could but have to make a couple of stops to relax my legs, coming back I have to go... More
