This area was pretty much what we expected: a lovely beach, yes, but red flags up and we did see either a few cautious swimmers or a couple of people gasping as they fled the surf! Huge, towering all inclusives dot the beach and there...More

Very nice beach and one of the few open sea beaches where you can swim( at the southern end, near Dorado Pacifico)with relative safety. Need to be very careful though due to riptides and sudden 6 foot waves.

This is a beautiful beach indeed, like one would expect to find at any world-class sun-worhipper-visitor destination. This is a good thing!

Even if the waves are a little rough I really enjoy swimming and going for long walks in this beach. It's always clean and safe.
