“Beach”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

When the tide is out, it is OUT... so there are lots of rocks but overall, its a lovely beach! When the tide is in, it's IN :-)

“Very relaxing”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

Though you won't get the same crystal blue waters like you would on the Atlantic side of Panama. Still, water is very warm.

“Great place for swimming, little shade”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

This beach was nice for walking and swimming. The waves were quite small and the water was crystal clear. There are no trees or places to get out of the sun so bring an umbrella if you need some shade. There was a restaurant but we didn't visit it.

“Beautiful beach- long walks at low tide”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

High tide limits you to small area depending on where you are staying - strong surf . Once the tide goes out, huge beach- exposing some rocky areas- long walk to the end- some interesting caves.

“fun beach”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Though it is not a traditionally attractive beach I really liked it. It had wonderful shells and the waves were fun for playing in. The water was not as clean as on some beaches but it was a lot of fun to explore.
