There were plenty people here during our day trip in mid November (low season) on a Friday, but I wouldn't call it crowded.

I seriously hope this little piece of paradise never changes in an ever changing world. We weren't there in peak season so didnt have to deal with any crowds.

I have lived on Isla for around 6 years and this is my 'go to' beach. When I want a quick dip, or a long afternoon of sun and fun.. this is the place! Lots of restaurants and bars nearby - Try them all!!

Just remarkable water. Beach vibe and people. Where locals and tourist come to hang and relax. Really I saw some of the most beautiful people here. No party or college dorks. Just people come to relax and enjoy Paradise.

Amazing clear, warm waters, drinks/food on beach. Can get a bit crowded and the water is super calm and flat in roped off area between moored boats (some playing music) and beach.

By far the best place for swimming and lounging on Isla! Shallow enough for the littles, but yet some days, offers decent waves to body surf!

The beaches are so beautiful. The white sand and blue water is amazing. It makes you happy just being on the beach.
