Went on atv excursions with stop here. Beach was pretty but not taken care of. Trash on beach. Locals try to sell you stuff. Would be better if they had people picking up water bottles and trash all around parking lot

We rented a car. The highway is absolutely perfect. There are a couple of toll booths each way of 100 pesos each. We used the phone's gps and took us there easy. Once you get to the beach, better park at the Macao Surf... More
