Fishing boats moor just off this wide beach, about 3 km (2 miles) long and its golden sand flecked with pebbles and a few rocks. The surf is a little stronger here than at Flamingo Beach, but the shallow, sandy bottom keeps it swimmable. There is one hotel almost on the beach, the vintage Hotel Brasilito. The sea is cleaner off nearby Playa Conchal, which is also more attractive. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: snorkeling; walking.
