This beach is a terrific place to spend an afternoon. The view of the ocean as well as the view of the city across the water is beautiful! Lots of nice restaurants nearby. If you go just a little ways up the road, the views get more and more amazing. Awesome place.

Considering we were here during Easter weekend, the highest number of tourists, the beaches were not overly crowded and clean. A few food vendors with great restaurants across the street.

I love Olas Altas beach. I don't swim here, but my dog does! Walking on the malecon is relaxing. This is a great place to see the sunset.

We stayed in Centro for a month, and we spent so much of that time just enjoying the beauty of Olas
Altas. This is a place that is frequented by tourists and locals alike. Bring an umbrella and your beach chair. You won’t want to leave! It is beautiful, especially at sunset, and there are fun restaurants and bars nearby.
