Plus many more! Order a drink, lay on their lounge chairs and enjoy the beach and ocean for the day!

Cigar smoker? There is also quaint cigar shops right on the beach with a great selection to choose from. 


Macoa Beach – Care to venture out a bit? You will not be disappointed. Go north out of town and 13 km on the highway to Macao beach. Take a right through a little village and when you get to the beach it will be amazing! Drive down the dirt road along the shore and just park under a palm tree. Bring a towel and enjoy!
