“worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

We went twice, once on the bus and again by vintage chevrolet bel air, 12 cuc each way.
A good craft market, stall holders not to pushy and a nice beach, although it did get deep quickly. 2-3 hours is proberly enough for shopping, a walk or swim on the beach and a drink in one of the beach bars. Dont use the beach toilets unless your tetinus is up to date!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Beautiful white sandy beach. Entertainment played while we were there. Friendly places to sit on the beach to eat and have a drink. Caution: the public bathroom on the beach is not pleasant.

“Lovely beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

Lovely beach but a little too noisy. The little craft market is worth a visit. Some lovely crafts, arts etc there but not too much to keep you there for hours on end.
