We visited the beach and spent all day hanging around laying on the beach and playing in the water. It's a lovely pristine place to spend a day.

The beach is beautiful and was very quiet when I was there. Great to do a walk, to surf, to swim or to sit with a nice book.

It's right off the highway, beautiful, yet empty. It's like finding yourself on a deserted island! I hid away on this beach for two days in a row and felt so safe and calm. Love it!

You can rent surf boards of Cocles beach but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! They do scams there where they give you badly fixed boards or soft foam boards that will break when you walk in even (happened to me) and charge you! For...More
