Went to this beach on a tour. Beautiful. Peaceful. Guys on the beach made us drinks for $5 US - coconut with rum, pineapple (crushed with rum) - very good. We did some swimming, snorkeling, relaxing. Beautiful spot for picture taking.

This is an ok beach. There are vendors who will try to sell you food and other souvenirs at an extremely high price. Not worth.

Worst beach in the tropics I have ever seen. The greenery around it is otherwise beautiful. Do not come here if you want to see a white sand, tropical paradise like Punta Cana. Also, expect lots of sand fleas.
