Nice beach

In the hotel zone of Manzanillo, nice beach, You should be careful as the beach is short and the sea is deep.

Busy beach by inclusive resorts. Too many people and aggressive vendors. Manzanillo has way better beaches.

This is a great place. You can spend the whole day in this area. Cruz is also available in nearby area and you may get to see whale if you are lucky.

It's a popular spot on the Santiago Peninsula, which separates Santiago Bay and Manzanillo Bay. Lots of activity, with tourists and locals.

Maybe if I were a native I would think differently but this is one of the dirtiest beaches I have ever visited. We went here rather than a resort because local tourism officials told us the water wasn't as rough as other area beaches, which was true. However, these same people told us that there was a lot of sea... More

It is a very nice, family and friendly beach on which you can stay with your kids because the waves do not hit strongly. There is a contra, the beach is mall so you could find it crowded.

Beautiful beach, very crowded. A cordoned off area for swimming is rather small, the rest of the beach is too rough for swimming. Parking area very close by, need to be there early to find parking. Locals love this place.

There is parking available. Stroller access or wheelchair access is difficult as vendors down below have partially blocked it with chairs and tables. but there are beach chairs with small table and umbrellas for rent. food and drink as well. Beer is 2 for $50 pesos. coconut drinks are over priced at $180 pesos. Ordered a drink in a pineapple... More

While staying at the Barcelo Karmina Palace, we wanted to check out some local beaches and were recommended a visit to this beach. It is gorgeous with amazing views, but the beach was very crowded with a huge hotel sharing the same beach with tons of families. And due to jetskis and boats, the middle of the area was cut...
