Very nice secluded beach. A little hard to get to, but very private. Better have an SUV. But totally worth it. Mostly locals. No amenities.

I have no idea how you’d get here otherwise but it’s gorgeous and deserted. Our guide says it’s his favorite beach and it only gets crowded twice a year.

Pretty nice spot! It is a place for locals, you don’t find crowds and the water is crystal clear! There is a hike trail that will lead you to a nice observatory and a second beach with unique views!

I found this beach doing my research for the trip and it did not disappoint us!. WAY off the beaten path, you will stumble upon this small beach with huge character. You can snorkel (won't see much but water is crystal clear) and play on...More

Beautiful secluded beach at the end of a fairly long, rocky dirt road! For us it was easy to find, for Google Maps provided turn by turn directions. The trip was so worth the effort, for the sand was beautiful, the water divine, and there...More

This was our favorite beach from our entire trip. Not crowded at all. Simply gorgous sand and gorgous water. Calm and protected. 30 min drive on a dirt road to get there, but well worth it! You could also camp there if you wanted to....More

This is a must see if your kids like hopping through water holes and seeing sea creatures and baby fish. Find Mitch at Playa Conchal outside of the Westin and he’ll guide you through all the sea creatures.
