The water is okay here. I didn't really like it all that much because the people in the restaurants were pressuring us to sit and eat there. The place was a bit crowded. The waves are a bit strong here. I wouldn't go back to...More

Great spot for getting the ferry to Isla but I wouldn’t go here for any other reason. The beach isn’t great and it’s got a lot of commercial boats.
