Great spot off the beaten path. Reasonably priced drinks and food. The beach is great and there is good snorkeling from there.

Sabien van Gelderen

Without a doubt the best spot in Mahahual to spend a day at the beach. Great people, great nachos and a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere away from all the hassle, just a few minutes away from the main boulevard. Also, one of the few places to enjoy the sun in the early evening as there are no large buildings blocking it.
