Fodor's Review

A couple of miles north of La Peñita, a dusty road leads to this long, secluded sandy beach with excellent swimming. The rutted dirt road from the highway, although only about 4 km (2½ miles) long, takes almost a half hour to negotiate in most passenger cars. Enjoy great views of the coastline from one of nearly a dozen seafood shanties. Turtles nest here in August and September. There are rumors of a major development here in the near-ish future. Facilities: Restaurants. Best for: swimming; walking.
