Fodor's Review

Playa Diamante is an estuary, formed where an underground river delivers freshwater into the ocean bubbling up through the clayish sand. The result is a shallow, protected area with virtually no currents, making it the perfect beach for families with children.The protected inlet points toward the southeast, so there are no waves. A striking beach, Playa Diamante is broad and shallow for up to 200 feet into the ocean. A narrow, paved road off of the highway makes for easy access. Alas, a beautiful, park-like grassy area with shade trees as well as the beach, is often littered.On weekends locals come and drive their vehicles across the sand; mind your children. Vendors then rent beach chairs, sell beer and some food. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: solitude; swimming; walking.
