Also known as "Shrimp Beach," this is a quieter place to relax in the sun as it's further away from downtown than most beaches.

Aside from the rock, which can be annoying, this is the best beach in the "downtown" area. Just north of Centro, leading right into the Malecon, this beach is great when trying to find a bit of sand to call your own.

Excellent beach. While there are lifeguards, they are not always on duty. Easy to grab a blanket or towel, some beverages, and hit the beach.
