About
Also known as "Shrimp Beach," this is a quieter place to relax in the sun as it's further away from downtown than most beaches.

What a great place to relax and we enjoyed the night life. The beach is extremely quiet and the near by night life is a lot of fun. The late night walks on the Manacon are filled with life and culture.

We stay at a little hotel nearby and go to Playa Los Camarones every day. Super friendly guys on the beach rent you umbrellas and chairs, and it's a great spot to hang out.

Aside from the rock, which can be annoying, this is the best beach in the "downtown" area. Just north of Centro, leading right into the Malecon, this beach is great when trying to find a bit of sand to call your own.
