I really liked the natural swimming pool down the street better . Limited food and drinks at snack shop. It's pretty here but lots of seaweed. Thought the swimming pool area had better swimming and actually was prettier.

It was a nice relaxing beach. They have some chairs for rent. A little shack was near by selling refreshments. A man will come by and take your order for Coco loco if that's your thing, but it will be room temperature. The water was...More
