Fodor's Review

The crescent-shaped strand is the most secluded, and beautiful, of the area's beaches. It's commonly referred to as Bahía Sucia ("Dirty Beach") because of the blankets of seaweed that drift to shore during winter months. The label is rather unfitting for the white sand and turquoise waters that mark the island's southwestern corner, reachable by way of a dirt road lined with mangroves. Amenities: none.

Best For: swimming, hiking.
