Beautiful bay with clean sand and crystal clear waters, local vendors offer not only souvenirs but grilled seafood served to you with a Presidente beer obviously.

We stopped here as part of a day tour. Nice secluded beach. Some people were snorkeling. There are cement busts along one end that was interesting.

this was a gorgeous beach and if we knew it existed we would have come here at least twice for the week. Also have little huts where you can eat.

Great for surfing or just chasing waves. Strong currents so watch the little ones that are playing close to the shore.
