Hidden away beach. There are local vendors, Beach chair & umbrella rentals $150 MX. Coconut drinks are over-priced. Warm waters that are easy to swim & soak in. Great day at the beach overall.

Do not recommend. Did not feel safe in the city of Manzanillo, Mexico. Walked around the city and quickly return to cruise boat after seeing young men with guns and the Mexican Federallies just a couple block away from the cruise ship dock.
