This beach is preferred by locals because it has no waves, lots of people selling cheap food and beer and some sports attractions, like standup paddle.

Some parts of the beach are great for eating cheap and going with large family groups, more on the "popular" side, while the other side has some sports options (standup paddle) and more expensive options. Be prepared to be in a huddle, and not the right option if you want peace, quiet and quality food.
