Enjoyed a day on this quiet little beach. Great place to stroll, snack, and grab a massage. Rented a cabana for the day.

While it can be busy over the Christmas season, February is a great month to visit. There are water sports for enthusiasts, but it is also a great place to just walk, swim and have lunch.

Can't walk on the beach the whole way because there is large rock outcroppings between Madera and La Ropa, but can walk the streets to La Ropa.
