We went early and had a shade palapa to ourselves. Other than the ugly view to the right of the refinery it was a good spot to spend a little time with the kids. Way less People than baby beach if you aren’t feeling social.

GREAT place to spend a relaxing day away from crowds, and with no timetable. 😎 1/2 hour travel from downtown, but it's worth it. Gentle waves, scenic views, just great.

We stopped here for a short time, after visiting Baby Beach. The beach wasn't very crowded at all, but it was later in the day. The beach was pretty big with plenty of space to spread out, but it wasn't as nice as Baby Beach....More

There's not much there, but that's the charm of the place. If you don't like crowds and noise, this is a beach you should try. Water is warm and good for paddling or swimming. Few people, no facilities, ample parking space right next to the...More

The beach is right next to the more crowded baby beach and offers a lot of shade with the little huts. There are more fish to see than at baby beach so bring snorkeling gear!

Can't go wrong here. Great for clear water and relaxation. Not as much sea life to experience, but very nice.
