More people means a bit more trash
The water can be very clear, or a bit cloudy if it has been stirred up by storms.
This is a southside beach on Calle Flamboyan in the neighborhood of Esperanza. Take 997 into Esperanza and park in the sand lot anywhere across the street from El Blok, Bilí, etc. Walk to the left toward the Cayo for fewer people, or straight down around the two piers to watch the children play and the fisherman do their thing.
Playa Esperanza is a public beach in Esperanza, running all the way from the sand bridge out to Cayo Tierra right into the Malecon in Esperanza.
It is a large bay with sailboats usually moored out in the deep water. There are two cayos which make for beautiful sights. There are also two piers that are used for fishing and for jumping into the water. On weekends, it is busy with locals, but that only increases the fun. There’s no better scene than children jumping in the water and screaming with joy. You can enjoy almost any beach activity on this protected beach, and surfers can even catch a nice wave out at the Cayo. Finally, Playa Esperanza has some of the most beautiful sunsets on the island.
There is some shade up off the sand, but nothing down near the water.
