Fodor's Review

When people discuss a "beautiful Isla Verde beach," this is the one they're talking about. East of Isla Verde, this Blue Flag beach is so close to the airport that the leaves rustle when planes take off. Thanks to an offshore reef, the surf is not as strong as other nearby beaches, so it's especially good for children and families. There's plenty of room to spread out underneath the palm and almond trees. For meals there are picnic tables and barbecue grills. Although

there's a charge for parking, there's not always someone there to take the money. Amenities: lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
