Fodor's Review

In Puerta de Tierra, this government-run beach has a patch of honey-colored sand shaded by coconut palms. An offshore reef generally makes surf gentle, so it's favored by families. Nearby restaurants make picnicking easy. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards, parking (fee); showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
