Fodor's Review

Just 1½ km (1 mile) south of Ballena Marine Park, off the Costanera Highway, you'll find a scenic beach with interesting tidal caves, popular for sea-kayaking. Coconut palms edge the beach, which is sometimes pebbly, with quite a dramatic surf, especially at high tide when the waves break against huge offshore rock formations. The ocean views are rivaled by the vistas of green, forested mountains rising up behind the beach. Sometimes there is guarded, private parking

here for about 75¢ an hour. Do not leave anything of value in your car. Amenities: some parking. Best for: walking, kayaking.
