Nice beach. Not too much undertow. You are best served by not being there after dark. We did see a guy that had been killed, the police were working the scene. If you don’t go looking for trouble you will be just fine

We enjoyed a long walk all along the beach front, there's the usual beach front activities to be found, bars, restaurants, cafes, it'ss not that far to walk to old Accopuco, we only had the day there, so didn't get much time to swim.

Lots of locals use this beach. Week-ends and holidays very busy. Beach restaurants close by. Nice view and nice beach.

Not the best choice for us, we prefer much more natural and quiet beaches withou commerce. So I would recommend Diamond beach - reachable by bus in about 20 min from Centro.

Go to La Union on Playa Hornos and meet Cerillo. You have to just love the guy. Except for some gray hair (but who has not gotten those) he has not changed in 30 plus years. Great Papas Fritas and cold beer and good ceviche...More

The area from the flag to Commercial is a good place. Soriana (very modern) and Aurrera (walmarts value brand) are right across the road for food and beer. The water is pretty calm with the sheltering rocks. I've seen tourists take their hammocks and string...More
