Playa Madera

It is the smallest beach within our bay, approx. 300 meters (0.18 miles) long and with very soft waves. Ideal for relax. Some restaurants and snack-bars on its shore. Its name "the wood beach" originates from colonial times when Spanish trading ships loaded oak, pine and mahogany at this point.

Many restaurants and snack-bars along its shore that open from breakfast to dinner. It is probably the most famous and popular beach of our destination.
