We stopped here for lunch one day while on the East side of the island. Great beach and view. Food was good, would go back.

Get away from the tourists and go to Chen Rio! The beaches are beautiful. The food is very good. And you don't have to battle any crowds. It's a perfect afternoon get away. Good for families.

We always stop here when driving around the island for the beach and the beer. Service is good and you can change in the bathrooms
