Is the beach near David white sand? Is it calm?

We are thinking of trying a beach vacation in panama... found a nice house on the beach near David called playa Barqeuta. Does anyone know if the beach is calm enough for swimming? Is the sand white?

There are stretches where the water is calm enough. There are also sections frequented by surfers from around the world. The sand, unfortunately, is darker. :)

Use caution at Playa Barqueta. There's a notorious undertow there.

The sand is not white and the ocean is not calm, it is however still a great beach to hang out on and there are very inexpensive fish restaurants there as well..
