This beach is where we spent most of our weekend, because it was so beautiful and peaceful! The VillaSol Suites has a beach club here and the service, food and drinks are great!

Beautiful, huge, soft sandy beach accented by huge jagged cliffs & rocks -- wow! And hardly anybody there! Swimming is possible, but not recommended... Heavy waves and undertow... be careful. There is a lifeguard. Also a beach club that was very nice for $3 per...More
