  • Such a beautiful scenic beach! My boyfriend and I came as a part of a 4x4 tour and the beach is so amazing.  more »
  • I went on a Safari tour and on our way back stopped off at the beach. It was so beautiful. I also had some coconut water from that beach. Thank you soooooo much!  more »
  • Catalina Island is incredibly beautiful. It is an excursion that can not be done! With the addition of the paseo de Altos de Chavón. A place that seems removed from the madielval era. Wonderful; From personal experience, I recommend to take decisions-vip, they are calmer, with small groups and services, meals and drinks are of top quality.

  • This is a small beach but with very delicious fresh food, be it a little pricey. The views are of course beautiful and you can take surfing lessons r go four wheeling. I suggest that you have a lobster and pick one of the fish caught that morning.
  • Very beautiful beach. If you're into big waves and great scenery, this is a must! Just watch out... The locals throw monkeys and parrots at you and then charge you $5 for a picture you didn't want taken
  • Macao beach is a virgin beach, is so gorgeous that your first impression is Wow this is amazing. You could eat fresh fish of the sea.
  • Gorgeous views, clear water. You're expected to negotiate dilligently for the fresh catch: this makes a lot of people uncomfortable but they're almost offended if you don't. Man up and play the game. The food experience is fantastic- fresh seafood you choose served wherever you can find the shade of a palm. Bring cash for drinks, dune buggies, food negotiations. I recommend water shoes as I saw broken bottles on the shore and no facilities.
  • Must visit. Clear warm waters. Crashing waves. Hold on to your belongings though a friend lost their phone here. Just be smart as you should traveling anywhere. Locals sell great food and cheap beer to you on the beach which is always great!
