If you plan to go on the weekend get ready to get there early because it does get crowded especially when kids are on vacation (summer and winter vacation). The waves are super calm and here you can find several boats that give tours around the bay, you can also find several options for snacks and local food to nibble... More

Our host Lions Club in Manzanillo Santiago booked a boat tour which picked us up along this beach. There are many large umbrellas available and vendors of homemade and commercial products. The Tesoro Hotel is along this beach. The view is fabulous.

Busy beach by inclusive resorts. Too many people and aggressive vendors. Manzanillo has way better beaches.

This is a great place. You can spend the whole day in this area. Cruz is also available in nearby area and you may get to see whale if you are lucky.

It's a popular spot on the Santiago Peninsula, which separates Santiago Bay and Manzanillo Bay. Lots of activity, with tourists and locals.

Maybe if I were a native I would think differently but this is one of the dirtiest beaches I have ever visited. We went here rather than a resort because local tourism officials told us the water wasn't as rough as other area beaches, which was true. However, these same people told us that there was a lot of sea... More

It is a very nice, family and friendly beach on which you can stay with your kids because the waves do not hit strongly. There is a contra, the beach is mall so you could find it crowded.

In the hotel zone of Manzanillo, nice beach, You should be careful as the beach is short and the sea is deep.

Beautiful beach, very crowded. A cordoned off area for swimming is rather small, the rest of the beach is too rough for swimming. Parking area very close by, need to be there early to find parking. Locals love this place.
