Fodor's Review

Just 2 km (1 mile) east of Playa Tarará is a wide stretch of white sand, which marks the very beginning of the popular Playa de Santa María. Here you can rent sun beds or pedalos and enjoy the facilities of a simple beachside café. There's also on-sand dining, catered by the hotels located behind the dunes. It's busier than Bacuranao and Playa Tarará, but still quiet enough to find your own stretch of sand. Amenities: water sports; food and drink. Best for: walking.
