Warm waves & so beautiful. Beach is very clean. However there is a constant barrage of beach vendors. They are friendly & polite but somewhat of a nuisance

This beach has been known for decades as Sandy Beach. Playa Bonita RV park is just one of several businesses that front this beach. By using the name in this way you are in effect advertising for the RV park and cafe.

When new moon is on the high tide is very high and the waves crash in a hurry. Knocked me down and almost out a couple of time. Still had a ton of fun. Lot's of vendors and even jet ski rentals

Water wasn't warm in April. The tide goes way way out and you can walk out and see the tide pools. Overall very positive. Not many vendors hassling you.

Here for two weeks. Good RV park but very close quarters (cozy). Here with the Winnebago WIT group. Nice beach. Parked at the beach. Good clean sand. Recommend.

Sandy Beach as know locally is a great place to hangout. Tides offer exploration of tidal pools, shells and other "flotsam". Dolphins and Pelicans can be seen from the beach.

Beach very clean, food is great! You have to try their blue shrimp, awesome! Taxi cabs are 2 dollars per person. Recommended to take taxi, as the streets Down town are very narrow.

Great place to park your RV for a month or so. The beach is soft sand and great to walk. Prime sites line the sea wall with best views.

Very pleasant site, but the picture does not seem to be the same place as I visited. Very enjoyable beach in winter.

Yes, it has public access, and there are several areas where you can park and walk down to the beach. Sorry, I don't know the name of the street that runs along the beach. I think most of the parking areas are free, but... More
