Beautiful beach. They serve on the beach and there is restaurant with lobster and other things. They don't cook it quite as good a New Brunswick people but it was a great view for lunch! You can rent chairs (from $2 - $10)

We are thinking of booking Iberostar Playa Pilar hotel, does the hotel beach get much people traffic from the infamous Pillar Beach or are the 2 far apart from each other? Any other "should know about" comments? Thx

It is about a 25 min walk along the ocean - make sure you wear water shoes there are some rocky areas, you may want to bring some water and money of you want to buy some beers at the beach.
Hi Any Jellyfish lately? I'm going next weekend. Thx
