The beach was very nice with lots of activities. The people are very friendly and helpful. It's easy to a whole day there. You have good restaurants and shopping all in one place.

Good location. Beach season from late May to end of October. Other times when the weather permits. Enjoy lunch at one of the chirinquitos, rent sun bed or just take your beachtowel and lay on the hot sand. During the summer especially Sundays are very crowded when families set up their picnics. Sea is mostly calm but sometimes red flag... More

The beach was seen in winter. Dark hard grainy sand. Not sure if tide actually ever cleans it. Some places to sit in shade. A town beach.

It is a nice place to walk. I stayed not too far away and walked along this beach many times. It is a very polular place for people running. I can imagine that it is very crowded in the summer as it is so close to the city.

I really enjoy coming down to this beach! There's good people watching, lots of local restaurants and bars, and some shopping. There's always trash on the beach, which is a shame, because I think it's quite pretty otherwise.

Nice beach but I didn't find anything special about it. It seems like all tourists like to visit it but for me it was average.
