Fodor's Review

When people talk about a "beautiful Isla Verde beach," this is it. East of Isla Verde, this Blue Flag beach is so close to the airport that leaves rustle when planes take off. Thanks to an offshore reef, the surf is not as strong as other nearby beaches, so it's good for families. There's plenty of room to spread out underneath the palm and almond trees, and there are picnic tables and barbecue grills. Though there's a charge for parking, there's not always someone to take the money. On weekends, the beach is crowded; get here early to nab parking. Amenities: lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
