It would be beautiful and peaceful except for the heavy, loud, vehicle traffic
Jul 2021
This is a beautiful beach, but the experience is marred by heavy traffic of dune buggies driving on the beach. These vehicles put out far more thick air pollution than cars. Not just exhaust fumes but gasoline and oil. They really make the air stink. And they are extremely loud. They would be illegal in many countries because of the excessive air pollution and noise. The tourists who ride in the buggies scream at people trying to quietly enjoy the beach and nature. In addition, the heavy traffic is destroying the fragil ecosystem of this narrow beach, which is the habitat of sea turtles, marine life ilke crabs, and sea birds, and causing the beach to erode into the ocean. It's a shame this beautiful beach has been spoiled. I don't know why they can't drive on the roads and highways like other people, or in the sand dunes, which is what the vehicles were designed for. I don't understand why these tourists can't simply walk on the beach instead of having to drive a vehicle on it. The beach is very unpleasant much of the day because of the heavy motor vehicle traffic. The tourists, who probably think they are cool and "green," are polluting the air, wasting fossil fuel, contributing to global warming and making a beautiful beach toxic for everyone else. Keep your vehicles off the beach and on the highways and in the dunes where they belong!

It's not a beach. It's a road.

It's a beautiful place but very unsafe to be there, speacially with children. Unfortunatly there are cars driving on the sand constantly, you can not relax or get the fresh air because of the pollution and noise the cars leave behind. I do not recommend it.

You will be sitting in the water while having your drink/lunch

Locals love this place as tables and chairs remain on the beach as high tide comes in. You end up sitting in knee high water.

Peaceful stop

Nice place to stop for a while during the buggy rides. You can take long walks, a swim in tranquile waters and also have a quick bite. Really nice!

Lovely beach...watch out for the bugueiros
Jan 2013 • Business
A very nice strech of beach near a cozy town. You can walk miles and find no one if you go to your left, but watch out for the bugueiros, buggy drivers with tourists that drive through the beach
