2 loungers and an umbrella at Tarzans beach club, 100 pesos. Lounge front row and lose yourself in the beautiful color of the water. Very shallow water, white fine sand, and attentive servers.

Its one of the better beaches in the world, as evidenced by its ranking on tripadvisor. However most tourists on the Island are here during the day, most locals hawking wares are here during the day, and the ferry being located adjacent means a constant influx of people. Great sand, great clear calm water...just lots of people. If you want something more quiet and private, but still a great beach, hit up one of the beach clubs on Sac Bajo like Zama where you can have much more privacy and all they ask is you buy some drinks from them.

Great beach for families as no rocks, sand is cool and water is shallow for some time. Check out the different beach houses as only some have bathroooms.

Our taxi driver recommended to visit sunset grill and was the most fantastic spot. We had drinks and appetizers at a table in the sand and watched the waves roll in. Perfect.

We spent a fun afternoon at this beach, ordering drinks and people watching. We had the use of beach chairs if we spent a certain amount on food or drinks, which is a pretty good deal!
