Nice beach, beautiful waters, nice to stay at the end away from the main hotels. White sands, good for a break from the rest of Cuba.

The waters were a little rough the first few days, as a storm had passed by just prior to our arrival, but the beach was amazing. We had a lot of fun 'wave jumping" and body surfing.

This really is a great beach. Miles of beautiful white sand and aqua blue water. If the water is calm you can be shoulder deep and still see your toes as clear as in a pool. Really is fantastic

Main hotel is great; bungalows not so great. Beaches fabulous with lots of natural vegetation kept in place. Restaurant served pork with everything! However, one chef , Paco, agreed to accommodate our group by serving beans with no pork! How kind! Trip on a whole was a pleasant experience.

The sand is soft and not so hot where u can't walk on it. The water is nice and clear! The water was a lil cool but once you dip your entire body in and swim around you start to warm up.
