I like this beach more that the scene at Dominical, quiet and beautiful rocky and sandy. Lots of wildlife in the tide pools. We say different crabs, fish and a small stingray.

The beach is clean and uncluttered by tourists ( June ). Very peaceful and quiet early mornings before artists set up their tables for selling their arts and craft. Beware of bugs! I did not wear any bug spray and was seriously bitten by mosquitos.
