This little fishing village a seashell's throw from the Mexican border is somewhere to come for some seriously off the beaten track beach time. It's a world away from the often hectic, scruffy feel of other towns along the coast.
The village, which sits on a sandbar cut off from the mainland by the Ocós estuary, is only reachable by boat from the town of Tilapa. There's some excellent swimming to be had here, although as with all the beaches along this coast, the undertow can be quite serious and there are no lifeguards. If you're not a strong swimmer, don't go too far out.
