Fodor's Review

Gorgeous, horseshoe-shaped Playa Rajada is a wide sweep of almost-white, fine-grain sand. Shallow, warm waters make it perfect for swimming, and an interesting rock formation at the north end invites snorkelers. It's also a favorite beach for watching sunsets, and for kitesurfing from November to May. Amenities: none. Best for: snorkeling; sunset; swimming.
