A great beach, very clean, both the sand and the sea, a lot of places to eat, stay and park. Didn't have any problem there, relativity warn water. Do not forget your bug repellent. Totally recommend, both the beach and the city.

Curral beach is a small one and very popular among tourists, so it is always crowded, if you don´t like this you should go to another beach.
