This is a very beautiful beach. The ocean is picturesque. It is very wide with lots of visitors. The sun is great. The water is cool. It is a great place to walk along the water. The sunsets are spectacular.

Cavancha has a lot of space so it didn’t feel too crowded, even at peak times. Lots of rentals available and plenty of vendors along the beach.

Loved this beach! Water is cold and waves are strong for inexperienced swimmers (ideal for body surfing). Sunsets are amazing. Great for a romantic walk.
