Nice beach, a bit rocky. There is no free parking. If you only want to stop to take a picture, you have to pay to park the car

Lovely fine sand, and at low tide, plenty of shallow lagoons, perfect for little kids. Downside is that proper swimming is tricky except at high tide because of the rocks. Several chiringitas and restaurants nearby
