Fodor's Review

Some locals call this beach Playa de Oro, but its alternative name means "high waves," and they do pack a punch here. That's what draws the surfers and Boogie boarders to this comparatively empty stretch between the hotel zone in Playa Santiago and the popular Playa Miramar. They don't mind the lack of services available at more popular stretches of sand elsewhere in the area. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; surfing; walking.
