We have a place at La Palapa, but prefer to lay out here. Good service. Cheap drinks. Good waves. A little less snobby especially if you like to stay late, meaning after 5 on the beach. Recommended.

Swell is a great restaurant right on the sand, elegant yet cozy. I felt comfortable eating here in this atmosphere. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Will be back for more dinners!
